“I am a primary care physician and I see many patients having problems with musculo-skeletal issues. This is especially true after the weekend. Many patients with these problems are “weekend warriors” or just took on too much to do, while with others it is an aggravation of an ongoing recurring problem. But overall regardless of whether the problems are weekend related or occurring regularly, there is no doubt that if these patients had stretched adequately prior to their efforts and on a regular basis, they would be in a far better situation. And this is why I recommend this book and encourage adequate stretching to patients.” – David M Reingold, M.D.
