Do you know that stretching is a great way to keep your heart healthy? Stretching allows your arteries to stay flexible and it helps to prevent vascular disease. For some people, stretching may be hard to do. If you find stretching hard to do, try using a stretching aid. Below we have listed some of our favorite CanDo® stretching aids that can help you get a deep stretch.
CanDo® Dynamic Stretch Strap
The CanDo® Dynamic Stretch Strap is an elastic stretch strap made by CanDo®. This strap stretches as you stretch, thus permitting dynamic rather than static stretching. The CanDo® Dynamic Stretch Strap is made with elastic pockets that allow the user to ease into a stretch. It is designed for facilitated stretching, an active form of stretching that uses isometric contractions to achieve greater flexibility gains than from static stretching. This reduces the need for a stretching partner and can help you improve blood flow on your own.
CanDo® Leg Stretcher
The CanDo® Leg Stretcher is an excellent assistive device to help stretch legs, feet, and ankles before and after exercising. Blood flow, flexibility and range-of-motion can all be improved by continually using the CanDo® Leg Stretcher. This can help prevent potential injuries and even vascular disease. Inflexible leg muscles, arteries and tendons can pose a danger to anyone who is not stretching regularly. When your muscles are not stretched, they can tighten and constrict movement. This can even lead to future injuries as well as stiff arteries in your body. With the CanDo® Leg Stretcher, flexibility can be maintained in the legs, feet, and ankles.
CanDo® Back Stretcher
The CanDo® Back Stretcher is great for correcting posture and stretching your back muscles. This is because it is designed to mimic the natural curve of the spine. All you must do to use it is to simply recline so that the spine aligns with the indent in the middle of the back stretcher. Do this for five-minute intervals to properly support the back and muscles. Regular use of the CanDo® Back Stretcher can improve posture and relieve any discomfort caused by poor posture, including muscle spasms, headaches, and muscle tension. It can also improve blood flow by expanding your arteries, making them more flexible and less stiff.
Stretching was just recently shown to help make your arteries more flexible. This improves blood flow and help maintain a healthy heart.
