|Title: ||Pre-exercise stretching does not prevent lower limb running injuries|
|Authors: ||Benaroia, Ilana|
|Keywords: ||Athletic injuries|
|Issue Date: ||2005|
|Abstract: ||CLINICAL QUESTION:
Does pre-exercise stretching reduce the incidence of lower limb soft tissue injuries in young adult runners (≤ 35 years old)?
CLINICAL BOTTOM LINE:
Studies involving young, healthy, male military subjects have failed to demonstrate a preventative effect of pre-exercise stretching on lower limb soft tissue injuries. Future research involving recreational or competitive runners, female subjects, and longer follow-up to track injury recurrence are warranted to further examine the effects of stretching on injury prevention.|
