Body Training Helena MT

Stretching helps delay the onset of the inflexibility that comes with maturity. As we age, our range of motion decreases, we lose tendon flexibility and our capacity to perform regular activities – climbing stairs, pushing open doors, shoveling – isn’t as good as it was when we were younger.
