Stretching For Your Knee Osteoarthritis – Standing Hamstring Stretch

December 30, 2010
Standing Hamstring Stretch

Standing Hamstring Stretch

Stretching the hamstrings is easy and doesn’t take much time.  It is also important if you want to treat your knee osteoarthritis conservatively.  Medications and surgery can be dangerous.  Try this – a standing hamstring stretch:

1.  Stand up

2.  Bend forward, keeping your knees straight –  until you feel a gentle stretch

3.  Hold the position for ten seconds

4.  Return to the position you started in

5.  Repeat five times

This post is part of a series about how stretching can play an important role in a conservative treatment plan for knee osteoarthritis.
