Ready To Run

By Peter Buffington, PT, DPT, USATF-I

In a given year, about 65 to 85 percent of runners will get injured.  To stay healthy, incorporate these stretches into your routine a few times per week.

A few stretches for your lower body will go a long way to keeping you on the roads. These may be simple, but doing the following stretches several times a week can help prevent injury and maximize your performance. Make sure that your hamstrings, quads, hip flexors, and calf muscles are included in whatever variations you choose. Here is the way we at OSM recommend doing these stretches.
