|OXFORD PHYSICAL THERAPY TRAINING TIP:|Spring Sports Tip: Stretching
Stretching has long been debated regarding its timing and method. Static (no movement) stretching is typically recommended post activity. Post activity static stretching has been found to diminish overall muscle soreness and help maintain range of motion of joints.
Dynamic (movement based)stretching has been shown to help prevent injury and prepare the body for activity. A dynamic warm-up would consist of activities associated with each individual sport (i.e. butt kicks and leg swings for soccer, shuffles and high knees for football, etc.)
Pre-season sports training will inevitably make muscles sore and bodies tired. With this in mind, please be aware that extended soreness or fatigue lasting longer than 1-2 days is often a sign of injury or an impending injury. Small aches and pains can easily progress to a debilitating injury.
If you have any questions or would like more information about this topic from the Oxford athletic trainer at our Fairfield office at 513-874-1999 or visit us on the web at www.oxfordphysicaltherapy.com
