Does stretching prevent injuries?
There has traditionally been a back and forth as to whether stretching is good or bad for you. I would like to clear this up. We will look at two different types of stretches that are most commonly prescribed; Static stretching and Dynamic Stretching. Static stretching is when you stand, sit or lie still and hold a single position for period of time. Dynamic stretches are active movements where joints and muscles go through a full range of motion,usually used before exercise as a warm-up.
