Every therapist has heard those infamous words: “I know I don’t stretch enough”.
Maybe you are a therapist that fights constantly against some of these myths and misconceptions, or maybe you still strongly advocate static stretching and wonder why this webinar is relevant.
Whatever the answer, this webinar will help you understand that the current evidence base for static stretching is within the parameters of performance, injury prevention, general wellbeing and warm-ups.
Mike will present the evidence and try to provide clinical context for how the evidence can and should be presented to patients and the general population, particularly runners and sports people.
Mike’s passion when presenting is to find the sweet spot that pitches the message to both patient and therapist alike, and we think he strikes that balance perfectly here.
- Understand relevant evidence surrounding static stretching.
- Learn the myths and misconceptions around stretching.
- Clinical context how the evidence can be presented to patients and the public.
