Back Care Tip: Quadriceps Stretch

Back Care Tip #2: Quadriceps Stretch

Every week, we will show you handy and very simple exercises you can do in the office and at home. Today, this stretch will help to lengthen the quadricep muscles at the front of the thigh.

Step 1:   Bring the foot to the gluteal area. Bring knees together.

Step 2:   To increase the stretch gently rock pelvis backwards by reducing the arch in your lower back (tuck your tail bone under).

Step 3:   Use the wall to enhance the stretch if required. Hold for 60 seconds.

**Please note that all these stretches should be pain free and patients should breathe normally while holding the stretch.
