It seems glaringly obvious, yet the medical profession have only recently begun to deeply investigate the role of exercise and health. Most of us see exercise as a chore or as a way to keep the pounds off, but what if I told you that it was the key to physical & mental health?
I was watching England play Colombia in the world cup the other night and towards the end of the main game and in extra time noticed that a fair few players were going down with cramp. This is not uncommon, especially when a match reaches extra time, but it made me think of clients and athletes in the past who I have seen and I wanted to shared my experiences with you.
My legs feel tight, and I keep stretching, but it doesn't seem to help, am I missing something? Am I going to do any damage by carry on stretching, or should I just be stretching more? This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions that crops up in our clinic discussions with our clients and the answer (unfortunately) isn't simple...but can at least be a little simplified.
