Stretch-Station has helped this aging endurance/adventure athlete regain mobility and comfort.
I am approaching 50 and have been active as a competitive athlete off-and-on since I was 16. The years of bicycle racing, surfing, skiing and other activities has left me with a desicated L5/S1 disk, worn hip joints, a separated AC joint, and questionable cartilage in my left knee. The assisted stretching offered at Stretch-Station does not fix these structural problems. However it does help SUBSTANTIALLY with the compensation injuries that arise from wear-and-tear.
So, the question is, why do you need “assisted” stretching? The answer is simple, without someone to assist you, some of these stretches are nearly impossible. Even if you could manage to stretch the right muscle in the right direction, you simply cannot modulate the force in a controlled way that is required to achieve the results you get with a trained therapist.
I highly recommend Stretch-Station for anyone who has chronic pain.
