Stretching is key to maintaining flexibility and should be carried out when the body is warm after exercise.

Following all treatments at Jīròu you will be given strengthening and lengthening exercises to do to help your body recover faster from its injury/ activity.  You will be shown how to carryout these safely and effectively.

The ideal location to do your stretches is in a clear space with a flat floor and a stretching mat however at Jīròu we realsie that the stretches and exercise need to fit in with your daily life so I will provide you with exercises you can do at your desk, standing in a que etc so that the not ideal location doesn’t prevent you from carrying them out.

I am just back from holiday and although the location for my post climbing stretches was not ideal, I have to say, I think it was perfect.
