Back Flexibility is an important factor in many sports. Although commonly called "Back Flexibility" hyper extension of the spine is the flexibility of the anterior structures. In very deep ranges structures supporting the spine get stretched. For most people however being able to stretch the back, requires the flexibility of the rectus abdominis, psoas minor and obliques.
The main problem with stretching these muscles is the fact that they do many actions and are well positioned to restrict the extension of the spinal column. On top of that most people overtrain these muscle groups, leading to tightness and poor posture.
Health benefits of back flexibility are many. Improved digestion, better posture, more space for heart and lungs, etc. In sports any overhead move can benefit from back extension flexibility. Tennis, baseball, football, volleyball and other sports that require the arm to come up to pick up more power in throws, spikes, blocks, etc when the back can extend and provide extra room for the shoulder joint.
Besides that dancers, gymnasts, figure skaters, wrestlers and yoga practitioners need back flexibility.
Our program uses proprietary kinesiological stretching techniques to quickly isolate and painlessly (key is the avoidance of the stretch reflex) allow one to bend backwards in the spine.
