Benefits of exercise

Stretching of the lower leg on FISIO functional hinges.

Stretching the muscles of the lower leg is an important component in motor activity. The flexibility of these muscles is especially important during exercises on the lower body. Shortened muscles do not allow you to make movements in full, which is why the technique of performing exercises suffers. There is a muscle imbalance.

Flexible muscles of the lower leg will help to avoid sprains, dislocations, muscle spasm, rupture of muscle tissue. This is important both for athletes and for people in everyday life, especially during the period of ice. This exercise will help you improve muscle elasticity, relieve tension and fatigue after a day at work, and restore muscles after heavy physical exertion.
