Physio Deal Kent – Common stretches often forgotten

Most of us know we should stretch when we exercise, but can be guilty of skipping this part of our training. For more information on why we stretch and when see our past post ‘Warm up and cool down – why bother and what to do’.

Some common stretches that are often forgotten or not known about, but can be very useful, particularly for those doing weight bearing exercises i.e. walking, running are;

  • Ilio-tibial band (ITB) stretch: 

  • Soleus stretch

  • Pirformis stretch
