Elite athletes have long relied on personalised stretching programmes to improve flexibility and prevent injuries. What many of us don't know is that many of these targeted stretches can have a much broader application. In Prescriptive Stretching, 2nd Edition, Kristian Berg shares his expertise on stretching and athletic training with over 40 different stretches. The visually stunning colour anatomical illustrations demonstrate exactly how each stretch targets a specific muscle. These stretches are designed to eliminate pain, alleviate muscle soreness, improve balance and flexibility and prevent common injuries. The text also features a detailed discussion of PNF stretching, as well as sample stretching programmes designed to improve flexibility and assist with injury prevention for various parts of the body. The essential text shows you how to quickly assess pain and identify the stretches to reduce discomfort. Specifically you'll find recommendations for common ailments such as headache, back pain, neck stiffness, shoulder soreness, golfer's elbow, tennis elbow and runner's knee. Whether you're looking to increase range of motion or simply eliminate muscle pain, Prescriptive Stretching, 2nd Edition has you covered.

"Prescriptive Stretching is the most comprehensive guide for managing pain and injury through stretching. Kristian Berg has the answers to the questions my patients frequently ask about stretching, and he clearly explains the why, how and when. An essential for every gym bag!" -Ron Noy, MD, Prestige Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine "Prescriptive Stretching is a wonderful resource for any level of learner. Beginning with the anatomy of the muscles and bones is critical in order to gain an understanding of the purpose of performing specific stretches and WHY. I especially appreciate the information on the health benefits of movement and stretching. The Four Main Principles are so insightful. Stretching is often a mystery to many people, and these guidelines are important in preparing the user to understand the purpose and function of each stretch. Although the book is science based, the terms are explained in a very easy-to-understand manner. The sections on posture are also very enlightening. So many people would avoid pain and dysfunction if they would take the time to focus on their daily postures and then address the misalignment through a stretch or series of stretches. This easy-to-follow guide offers simple application for better health and daily performance through flexibility." -Irene McCormick, MS, CSCS, Senior Director of Fitness Education for Orangetheory Fitness
