Stretch for Success

stretch for success logo

Stretch for Success began as a pilot project to address a growing trend in muscular and joint injuries in children in the Waterloo Region. Problematic posture refers to the stooping/hunching posture being seen in young children, due largely to the increased use of portable technology. This is a detriment to children’s health and wellbeing and often causes neck and backache issues. It leads to headaches, digestive issues, fatigue, and general pain.

MCCHR partnered with Inspire Health and Wellness to develop video resources on stretching to reduce the symptoms of compromised posture in school-age children.
