Movement Vault utilizes many science and research based techniques, stretches, and exercises to help you alleviate pain, decrease future injuries, and improve your mobility and flexibility.
We place a strong focus on active stretching instead of passive stretching. Active stretching is far more effective than passive stretching.
Active Stretching happens when you first stretch your muscles to their maximal length, and then contract and activate these same muscles that you are stretching out. This is the most effective form of stretching. When you are active stretching you are improving your muscle activation, and getting stronger at your joints and muscles end range of motion,all while improving your your active mobility.
Active stretching has been shown to decrease future injury risk.
Passive stretching is when you only stretch out your muscles and joints while staying relaxed. You are not actively contracting and activating your muscles while passive stretching. Passive stretching is far less effective than active stretching, and has been shown to increase injury risk and decrease performance when performed before an athletic event or workout.
We are currently conducting research on how the Movement Vault program helps our users alleviate pain, decrease future injury, and improve flexibility and mobility.
