Flames fact sheet (Flexibility)

Flexibility and mobility of joints is one thing we generally lose as we get older because of the amount of scar tissue that we accumulate in muscle over the years. This scar tissue sees muscles and tendons shorten and we become far more susceptible to injury.

Stretching and full range of movement exercise is a great way to break down and stop the formation of the scar tissue, and to help us remain mobile and injury free. It is therefore crucial that flexibility training be included in everyone’s daily routine. It is also beneficial to add massage into your routine especially when getting started as this will promote the breaking up of scar tissue, increase circulation and promote healing.
