Simply Stretching – Part of Rittenhouse Physical Therapy

We incorporate some stretching into every workout at The PrivatGym™. But Rittenhouse physical therapy also can involve stretching.

So many clients suggested that our Rittenhouse physical therapy team create a stretching program.

They know that stretching helps keeps us flexible. And our Rittenhouse physical therapy team notes that stretching relieves muscle soreness. And it reduces joint stiffness.

Not only that, stretching can enhance your physical ability, mobility and range of motion. There isn’t a downside if you stretch with care.

Well, we listened. And, our Rittenhouse physical therapist Lauren Gastall PT DPT created the “Simply Stretching” Program.

Of course, your “Simply Stretching” program matches your abilities and needs. We’re a cautious team.

But there are a few common elements in your 30 minute routine.

  • We start with a brief 5-minute warm up. Stretching cold muscles can lead to injury.
  • We focus on major muscle groups. You benefit most from stretching neck and shoulders, lower back and calves, hips and thighs.
  • We avoid pain. You’ll probably feel some tension and stiffness while we stretch. That’s good. It’s increasing your range of motion and flexibility.

It’s easy to log in and buy sessions online.

And because stretching is most beneficial when you do it regularly, we offer 5 and 10 session packages.

And if you have questions, Lauren and our Rittenhouse physical therapy team will be glad to answer them. Just stop in. Or you can call us at 215-545-6500 or email to Or go to our contact us page.
