Session Description:  As the historical methodologies of sports medicine have evolved and expanded, the act of passive stretching has been replaced by low-intensity exercise—or warming up—in order to fully prepare the body for physical tasks. Combined with a prevention-based approach, warming up has proven to be a powerful and effective tool in a modern occupational setting, bringing heightened productivity, lower rates of musculoskeletal injuries, and long-term improvements in both health and safety.
