PT Tip of the Week: Stretching myths. “Do I stretch before, or after I workout?”

“Research shows that stretching is best done AFTER you workout. You should actually jog, walk, or bike for about 10-20 minutes before you workout to warm your body up & better prevent injury. You get more results out of stretching/flexibility exercises post workout when your muscles are fatigued.”
– Josh Davis, PT at the Encore Rehabilitation-Hayden Clinic.
