Stretching Those Leg Muscles

Stretching leg muscles every day may benefit seniors and other people with mobility problems, a new study reports.

Researchers placed splints on lower limbs of older rats to stretch their calf muscles. The splints were placed on one leg for 30 minutes a day, five days a week, for four weeks.

This stretching program increased blood flow to muscles in the lower leg, according to the study published April 4 in the Journal of Physiology.

The findings suggest that regular stretching could improve blood flow to leg muscles and improve walking ability in elderly people and others with limited mobility.

However, animal studies don't always produce the same results in humans.

"This highlights that even individuals who struggle to walk due to pain or lack of mobility can undertake activity to possibly improve their health," lead researcher Judy Muller-Delp said in a journal news release. Muller-Delp is a professor of biomedical sciences at Florida State University.

She noted that the researchers did not test a range of stretches or different time spans.

"It is possible that greater stretch or stretch that increases steadily over the four-week period would have an even greater benefit. It is also possible that greater benefit would be seen if the stretching continued for longer," Muller-Delp said.

 

Did You Know

Learning new things can help keep your mind sharper, no matter what your age.

Harvard Medical School recommends:

Take up a new skill or hobby. Continue to read, do puzzles or attend night school.

Engage all of your senses each day by taking in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes around you.

Believe that you can keep your memory strong and sharp.

Use a calendar or reminder app to remind you of appointments and other commitments.

Repeat something you've just learned to help you remember.

Healthy Muscles Matter
