Foam Rolling & Stretch Class
This can help improve flexibility and reduce muscle tightness and pain. When stretching, focus on the major areas of your body that help with mobility, such as your calves, hamstrings, hip flexors, and quadriceps.
At ARC our stretch sessions consist of dynamic stretches and a range of motion to alleviate tension in muscle fiber and ultimately ease tight muscles. Join one of our group classes to train with one of our experienced physical therapists today.
Foam rolling can help reduce pain and muscle soreness. Massaging the muscles increases blood flow and oxygen to the tissue, helping the natural healing process. Foam rolling makes use of your body weight in order to increase range of motion. The foam roller works by massaging or releasing your muscle and is also a great myofascial release.
