Stretching is an important part of orthopedics, dynamic and static stretching. Most importantly, this should not just be done before and after a workout. It should be used at different periods throughout exercises. Some research suggests that as much as an hour of stretching may be needed to have the effects last for more than an hour during exercise.
A Dynamic Stretching Routine
Most dynamic stretching routines will focus on movements that mimic the sport that you are about to participate in. You will move your joints through their full range of motion. Overall, this can help improve heart rate and blood flow to help you run efficiently and safely.
Also, static stretching routines involve moving a muscle through its full range of motion. Then holding it there for at least 30 seconds. This form of stretching should only be done after a warm up or athletic activity to help prevent injury.
