Hip flexor stretch (kneeling)

Hip flexor stretch (kneeling)

  1. Kneel on your affected leg and bend your other leg out in front of you, with that foot flat on the floor. If you feel discomfort in the front of your knee, place a towel under your knee.
  2. Keeping your back straight, slowly push your hips forward. You should feel a stretch in the upper thigh of your back leg and hip.
  3. Hold the stretch for at least 15 to 30 seconds.
  4. Repeat 2 to 4 times.
  5. It's a good idea to repeat these steps with your other leg.
