How Necessary Is Stretching?
from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
NATA has notified the source of this article to offer thanks for publicizing this research and to inform that athletic trainers should be consulted before active adults and children begin exercise or stretching programs.

For years, flexibility has been widely considered a cornerstone of health and fitness. Many of us stretch before or after every workout and fret if we can’t lean over and touch our toes. We gape enviously at yogis wrapping their legs around their ears. "It’s been drummed into people that they should stretch, stretch, stretch -- that they have to be flexible," says Dr. Duane Knudson, professor of biomechanics at Texas State University in San Marcos, who has extensively studied flexibility and muscle response. "But there’s not much scientific support for that."

Not too long ago, if an athlete had a phantom pain in the wrist, it was often hard to get an accurate diagnosis. But during the past few years, a Mayo Clinic physician in Rochester has helped to change the practice of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging. "We use sound waves to see into the body -- tendons, ligaments, muscles and nerves. It's only been in the past five/ten years that we have the ability to see through the skin. You can point to where it hurts and we can see what's right under there," said Dr. Jay Smith of Mayo's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. More
