Prevent injury by stretching for 10 mins every day
Even though my trade is made by treating injuries, I am definitely one for prevention rather than cure. Not asking you to become a yoga crazed fanatic as everyone seems to be today (me included), BUT just a few simple stretches 10mins in the morning and 10mins in the evening. What type of stretches? All depends on your body and what you put through it everyday, but from what I see in clinic the following are usually tight: Hamstrings (back of thighs); Calf Muscles (back of shins); Pecs (chest muscles); Flexors of Wrist (inside of forearms); and Biceps (your guns).
