The controversial book ‘The Stark Reality of Stretching” suggests that some traditional methods of stretching may be doing more harm than good. Dr. Stark’s credentials are impeccable. He was appointed to the Sports Medicine Council of B.C. and is the first and only podiatrist in B.C. to specialize in sports medicine and functional control.
For years stretching has been touted as an integral part of any successful fitness program. Its role in promoting health, good posture, and injury prevention is undisputed. It enhances athletic performance and promotes flexibility, which is vital as we age for keeping us mobile and free of injury.
One of the most useful aspects of the book is the way it describes the many common mistakes made and how to correct them. Dr. Stark says that when he treats patients who’ve been stretching incorrectly and have been injured as a result, recovery takes place within a few sessions.
Dr Stark has made his book easy enough for the average reader to understand.
