Functional assessment and dynamic, informed treatment. It’s healthcare, for your muscles.

    Standing Quadriceps Stretch

    Target the front of the thigh to relieve knee and low back pain.  Stand with feet just at hip width.  Bend the knee of the side you want to stretch so that your heel comes up toward your buttock.  Use a towel roll tucked behind the knee to open up the joint. Grasp the foot or ankle with the same-side hand, or use a belt or towel if you can’t reach.  If needed, rest your opposite hand on a table or chair to help maintain your balance throughout the stretch.

    Thread-the-Needle Piriformis Stretch

    This stretch is essential if you spend all day on your feet, or suffer from hip pain or sciatica.  Start in hook-lying position: on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground.  On the side you want to stretch, turn your knee out, and cross your ankle across the opposite knee.   Reach the arm on the stretch side through the triangle space between your legs and hold behind the knee of the opposite leg with both hands. To increase the stretch, lift the opposite side foot off the ground and bring that knee toward your chest.
