We want your body to feel its best. We often neglect taking it slow and how important it is to protect our mobility and independence. The answer is we all need to stretch. "A lot of people don't understand that stretching has to happen on a regular basis. It should be daily," says David Nolan, a physical therapist at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without stretching, the muscles shorten and become tight. Injured muscles may not be strong enough to support the joints, which can also lead to joint injury.
