In this online edition of the Functional Video Digest Series, Gary Gray introduces you to his concept of stretching. For Gary, there is a huge difference between stretching and functional stretching. He explains functional flexibility and the proper understanding of functional biomechanics. Gary also utilizes a variety of balance assessment and examination strategies and techniques in order to properly analyze and rehabilitate flexibility. Similar to the difference between strumming a guitar and playing music, similar to the difference between punching keys on a calculator and doing complex mathematical equations, similar to the difference between throwing paints at a canvas and painting a master piece. You get the idea…because when stretching is done properly it is incredibly beneficial and functional, and when it’s not, Gary would say it’s kind of a waste of time. This is an enjoyable, pragmatic, and very informational edition of the Functional Video Digest Series.
