Dr. Jay Greenstein, member of the Thera-Band® Research Advisory Committee (TRAC), was recently featured in ACA News, a publication of the American Chiropractic Association. As part of an article on “New Tools for Your Toolbox,” Dr. Greenstein described several new products to enhance clinical practice. “When I first saw the new Thera-Band® Stretch Strap, I immediately fell in love with it,” said Dr. Greenstein. In the article, he described the benefits of the Stretch Strap as well as several exercises he uses in the clinic as CEO of Sport and Spine Rehab (http://www.ssrehab.com/). Stretching exercises are important for increasing or maintaining muscle length, flexibility, and range of motion. The Thera-Band Stretch Strap has the ability to perform both contract-relax and static stretching, which are common and effective modes of stretching. Traditional straps only provide for static stretching, while the elasticity of the Thera-Band Stretch Strap facilitates contract-relax stretching where muscle is first contracted, followed by a stretch. For more information on the Thera-Band Stretch Strap, including free exercises, check out the Thera-Band Academy’s online portal here.
