Poor flexibility is not a disease, but a symptom. It may be the result of a disease or injury. It can also be the result of inactivity. Flexibility is a sign of overall fitness. It is the ability to comfortably move your joints and muscles through their full range of motion. Lack of flexibility can impact on daily living and require intervention in the form of exercise and physical therapy.
Massage therapy can help increase flexibility and enhance the work of a physical therapist by warming up muscles and improving circulation.
