Walking

PROVIDING TREATMENT FOR

Walking is one of the healthiest activities you can choose to help you maintain and gain physical mobility. To gain mobility, plan activities throughout your day that keep you moving for periods of at least 10 minutes. To maintain your mobility, make every movement count. Add up all you do in a day and aim for a minimum of 60 minutes of movement every day. For maximum benefit, physiotherapists recommend regular physical activity and stretching to maintain your physical mobility throughout the year.


Remember to stretch!

Stretching – as a warm-up, a break during repetitive movement, and a cool-down after your walk – helps you to move easily, keeps your muscles flexible and relaxed, your joints mobile, and relieves tension and strain.


A warm up before walking helps reduce the potential for muscle strain, injury and fatigue. Start out slowly on your route until you feel warm. Then take a few minutes to do your stretches, and repeat them again at the end of your walk. On longer walks, it may be a good idea to stop and stretch at the mid-way point.


When stretching, remember:

• Movements should be slow and controlled to the point where you feel a gentle pull of the muscle. If this pull lessens, stretch a little more. It should never be painful;

• Once you feel a stretch, hold the position for 15-20 seconds. Do not bounce or jerk;

• Repeat each stretch three times in the same direction; repeat for the opposite side.

​​Active Body Physical Therapy started with a simple premise: Make available to every person the health resources they need to live a healthy, active, and long life. At the same time, educate each person about the importance of preventative health measures. This same idea still drives us today, some 15 years later. The track record we've accumulated over the years speaks to our commitment to patients, their families, and the community at large. All of our facilities are clean and modern, with the latest technology at our disposal. Just as important, both our medical and office staffs are second to none. We think you'll notice the difference immediately when you step foot inside our doors. We'd love to see you today to map out a health and wellness plan that's tailored to your health history and needs.
