CEU Webinar | Facilitated Stretching: Reduce Pain and Improve ROM in Chronic Neck and Low-Back Conditions


Many of our clients or patients experience discomfort or pain in the neck and shoulders or the low-back because of postural stress, sports activities, work-related stress, or trauma.

Stretching the muscle groups in these regions can provide great relief from tightness and pain and help restore normal range-of-motion and pain-free function. Facilitated Stretching is a safe and effective flexibility method that incorporates moderate isometric contractions of the muscles to be stretched, followed by active (not passive) stretch to a new and pain-free range-of-motion.

Discover a series of valuable stretches using Facilitated Stretching that can be easily incorporated into someone’s life.
