In this video Alex is demonstrating a Seated Hamstring Stretch. This is for a stretch of the muscles on the back of your thigh. This is a good stretch to perform both before and after surgery in order to help with knee straightening.
- Sit in one chair, propping the heel of the leg to be stretched on another chair seat same height or slightly lower
- Keep your back straight, head up
- Don't allow the knee to bend up as you stretch
- Lean forward from your hips/waist until you feel a gentle stretch at the back of your thigh/knee
- Hold 20-30 seconds
- Perform 2-3 repetitions
- Repeat on opposite side
