"How Does Stretching Benefit Fibromyalgia Sufferers?
Stretching is one of the best forms of exercise that someone with fibromyalgia can do. But maybe you need some reasons to stretch to get you motivated. Here are some of the many benefits of basic stretches:
1) Stretches help to elongate your muscles, helping to release stiffness and pain.
2) Simple stretching exercises increase your flexibility, allowing you to get the full range of motion in all of your joints. This will help with your daily activities, including shopping, driving, cleaning, and cooking.
3) Stretching will provide you with some much-needed time to relax, practice meditation, or just get reacquainted with yourself.
4) If you suffer from disordered sleeping, a daily stretching routine may help you to fall asleep faster and wake up less during the night."
