-Warm up first. Muscles stretch more easily when warm. try walking for a few minutes before doing any stretches.
-Fell no pain. Stretch only to the point of milk tension, never to the point of pain. If a stretch hurts, stop doing it. Reset your position carefully and try again. With time and practice, your flexibility will improve.
-Breathe. Breathe comfortably when stretching.
-Practice often. You'll see the best gains if you stretch frequently - several times a day on as many days of the week as possible.

Through ATM, individuals learn to recognize detrimental habitual patterns of movement that may be contributing to orthopedic or neurological problems, or inhabiting the ability to perform daily activities. The repetition of these non-strenuous sequences of movements teaches the brain to replace dysfunctional movement and thought patterns with new, more efficient movement options.
As one learns to relax and abandon habitual patterns, increased awareness, flexibility and coordination evolve naturally. Participants typically report feeling more relaxed, energized, taller, lighter, and more balanced in posture. Pain and tension often decrease and breathing becomes easier. #CentralParkPT

Done correctly, it's what prevents injury, not causes it. According to the Global Burden of Disease 2010, low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. Instead of avoiding our back altogether, we should be strengthening it to prevent injury. #PhysicalTherapyNYC
