Please consult with your Physician before beginning
this or any other exercise program.
With your back supported and the one leg bent, use your hands to grasp the knee of the straight leg and gently help the muscles bend the knee, with the heel sliding. Slide the heel until both knees are bent. Relax for a few seconds and start to slide the heel back.
While sitting on the floor, place both legs straight out. Extend your arms straight out and reach forward, while bending at the waist. Keep moving your body forward as you glide your hands along the tops of your legs.
Move forward while keeping your knees straight. Once you feel some discomfort, hold for 10 seconds and then return to an upright seated position.
Straight Leg Raise
Tighten the thigh muscles in the injured leg by pressing the back of your knee flat down to the floor. Hold your knee straight.
Keeping the thigh muscles tight, lift your injured leg up so that your heel is about 12 inches off the floor. Rotate leg to the side of your body and hold, then return to neutral position. Hold for 5 seconds, then lower slowly.
