Does Flexibility Prevent Running Injuries? (Myth vs. Reality)
Myth: lack of flexibility causes running injuries
Reality: lack of flexibility leads to dysfunctional running postures that contribute (or even cause) common running injuries such as knee problems, shin splints, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis.
Solution: warm-up your entire body before you run and practice flexibility training after you run (or before bed) to maintain and improve functional mobility.
