Assisted stretching is a technique where a skilled therapist assists a patient get passive stretching so the patient themselves need not make any movements to acquire the stretch. It feels really good and has been used in physical therapy for decades but recently it has made its way into gyms and spas for the general public. Assisted stretching has various aspects within it (active isolated stretching, stretch therapy, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, dynamic body stretching and fascial stretch) to increase flexibility and mobility of a muscle or group of muscles. It requires advanced training in body movement and physiology, thus best done by skilled chiropractors who know their patient’s musculoskeletal blueprint.
