Stretching your muscles will actually result in them feeling less painful after your workout and also prevent delayed onset muscle soreness which can happen days later.
don't skip stretching...
So many people skip stretching their muscles before exercise, not understanding how important it is. Most of those who do not warm up before exercising would not even think about there being a need to stretch muscles after exercising, which is often called cooling down. They worked hard during their exercise and now they just want to drag themselves home before the pain of such a strenuous workout of the muscles overtakes them What they do not realise is that if they stretched properly they would not feel the pain afterwards.
From the therapists mouth
In my experience stretching is the best way to avoid soft tissue injury and it should always be done before and after exercise, as on the few occasions I have not stretched properly in the past I have ached for days afterwards! This is how lessons are learnt!
I always preach to my clients that they should stretch regularly even when not exercising just to keep the muscles and joints flexible. The results show when my clients that actually take my advice and do the stretches I give to them after massage, are the ones that recover quicker so I always see improvements each time I treat them.
