PainSci notes on Pereles 2011:
As the title promises, this is an unusually large study of pre-run stretching, with more than 2700 participants, and decisively finding “no statistically significant difference in injury risk between the pre-run stretching and non-stretching groups.” Injury rates for all kinds of injuries were the same, with or without stretching. It’s almost as though stretching made no difference at all. But make up your own mind!
