Dynamic stretching Dynamic stretching has become the warm-up technique of choice over the past few years, with conditioners teaching and athletes hence using the techniques to prepare themselves for their sport. Simply, dynamic stretching is where the muscles and the joints that they act over are taken actively through their available range without holding the position for any length of time. Studies have shown that dynamic stretching allows athletes to improve their performance in athletic tasks such as sprinting and jumping when they have prepared using these techniques.

This might be the serve in tennis, or passing a ball over varied distances in rugby or football or bowling in cricket. In all the above areas, the movements need to be gradually progressed in range and intensity until the player gets to full range or speed, so that their body is fully prepared. It is hoped therefore that this preparation will mean that injuries are less likely to occur because the body is in a state of readiness and has already carried out the majority of stressful movement patterns in a graduated way before the high intensity of the game or race begins.

If these components are carried out, they can limit the amount of DOMS and hence promote a faster recovery and facilitate an earlier return to full training.

The injury can either be a muscle strain, muscle haematoma or even a joint strain, and the exercise will increase the blood flow to the affected area. As the first part of the inflammatory process begins with the injury and the associated bleeding, the increased blood flow to the area can cause further bleeding and make the injury worse.
