Hold your foot upright while resting for a smooth and consistent stretch of your plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and calf muscle. The Pro Stretching Belt functions as an ambulation splint at night to help with toes, puddle teeth, flat feet, and other gait abnormalities by promoting proper plantar flexion and restoring range of motion to the ankle.

It also helps relieve pain related to Achilles tendon pain, heel spurs, calcium deposits that form under the plantar fascia ligament, causing pain when it touches against the heel tissue.
VERSATILITY AND EASY TO USE
The Pro Stretching Belt is made with quality durable polyester cotton with multiple sturdy loops to tailor your stretch. This is the perfect bundle for any dancer, yoga exercises, athletes, physical therapists, and rehab patients. It can be used by anybody, regardless of its range of mobility or low flexibility.
The Pro Stretching Belt is durably constructed to withstand extensive use. It is ergonomically designed for easy gripping, made from a strong, durable, non-stretch polyester canvas strap with an extra wide foot strap. This easy-grip stretching belt with ergonomic handles allows you to stretch without assistance, prevents injury, facilitates gradual and gentle stretches that protect your muscles and makes you more and more flexible each day.
When you stretch, you elongate your muscles around the joints which helps increase the range of motion and in turn, helps to avoid injury, improves stability, foot mobility, as well as your overall fitness. Regular stretching helps lubricate your joints and ligaments, improving your blood flow to your leg muscles, allowing them to recover after exercise. It also avoids stresses and injuries from sports, exercise, yoga, Pilates, and other activities.
IMPORTANCE OF STRETCHING
Many people think of stretching as something performed only by runners or gymnasts. But we all need to stretch in order to protect our mobility and independence.
“A lot of people don’t understand that stretching has to happen on a regular basis. It should be daily!” says David Nolan, a physical therapist at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.
BENEFITS OF STRETCHING
1. Stretching can improve posture.
Tight muscles can cause poor posture. Many of us spend at least a portion of our day sitting at a computer or looking at a phone or tablet. The position that is typical with these activities (rounded shoulders and forward head) is a position of poor posture. We can improve on this by stretching the pectoralis, upper trapezius, and hamstring muscles, to name a few.
2. Stretching can improve range of motion and prevents loss of range of motion.
As we age, our joints lose range of motion. We can counteract this by stretching regularly. Even if range of motion in some joints is limited, stretching can help to improve this.
3. Stretching can decrease back pain.
This somewhat goes hand in hand with posture. If we have poor posture in the upper back, the lower back compensates and can develop pain. Also, if we have tight hamstrings or hip flexors, the lower back compensates and can develop pain. Stretching the leg muscles and the muscles mentioned for posture will likely help to decrease back pain.
4. Stretching can help prevent injury.
If you stretch a muscle too far, it will become strained or torn. If your stretch and increase the range in which a muscle can move, the likelihood of injuring it decreases. Stretching before physical activity specifically helps prevent injury by bringing blood flow to the muscles, warming them up, and decreasing any tightness they might have to prevent a strain or a tear.
5. Stretching can decrease muscle soreness.
If you have soreness in a muscle or muscle group from a recent workout or from a muscle strain, stretching can help relieve some of this discomfort. Many times, when we are injured, the muscles around the injury site tighten up as a protective response. By stretching these tight muscles out, pain and soreness can be alleviated.
There are 6 loops to fit your various exercise needs, suit for yoga, ballet, Pilates, workout, athletic teams, relaxing, and flexibility training. Use while seated or supine to stretch the plantar fascia, foot, or calf.
While seated on the chair or floor, pull the strap toward you to stretch the bottom of the foot/plantar fascia. This stretch is commonly prescribed to those who suffer from plantar fasciitis. The position can also be used to stretch the calf with the leg fully extended. Use while standing or lying face-down to stretch the quadriceps (quads).
While standing, it is recommended a chair or other stationary object be used for balance. To stretch the quadriceps, use your free hand and arm to pull upwards on the strap, moving your heel up and toward your seat, effectively stretching the quads. Stretch the outer hip, hamstring, and gluteus.
While supine, use the strap to guide your foot across the body in a controlled motion to stretch the hip and glute. Pulling the strap toward you in this position can also provide a stretch to the hamstrings.
