Common Qustions

Q: When is the best time to stretch?

A: It is important to stretch before and after working out or playing a sport. Dynamic stretching is better for warming up and static stretch is better at the end for cool down. Dynamic stretching is stretching while moving. It allows for controlled movements of the arms or legs that take you to the limits of range of motion which improve flexibility and range of motion. Most dynamic stretches work multiple muscles in one stretch allowing a more efficient warm up. Static stretching is stretching while at rest. It allows you to maintain currently flexibility and increase range of motion. Static stretching releases stress and can be relaxing. It can aid in decreasing muscle soreness if completed after a work out. Both static and dynamic stretching are important to maximize flexibility and prevent injury when working out. A key factor is knowing when to stretch, and how to do it properly.

Q: Should my child play year round baseball or multiple sports?

A: It is important for your child to engage in multiple activities throughout the year and not only play one sport. It is common to think that by having your child play one sport year round they will become great at that sport. Truthfully, this puts your child at a higher risk for injury due to overuse and lack of rest. Playing multiple sports allows for cross training. Cross training is a way to work different muscles and skills and allow other muscles to rest. Don’t forget, rest is a key part of training!
