Treat the Cause not the Symptom; Part 3




That Ankle Sprain affected more then just your ankle...




The Foot and Ankle in my opinion are severely under appreciated in there impact on our body, especially when it comes to restoring normal biomechanical function after an injury. Current orthopedic data estimates that there are 25,000 ankle injuries each day in the US alone. Of that 80% are inversion (supinated) ankle sprains, that's 20,000 a day and unfortunately back in 1995 I was a victim of a sprained ankle. 

Should I Stretch after Exercise




most definitely you should for a few reasons. 


When you workout whether it's going for a quick run, bike ride, exercise class, lifting weights or playing a game your putting the muscles under stress by contracting them. 
This causes the muscles to fill with blood, produce lactic acid (by product of muscle contraction), micro tears, inflammation and causes increased tension on the body as a whole. Now I'm sure all of us want a fit & tight body but having excessive tightness is not good because it restricts the bodies ability to move easily and freely.
