Side Lying Quadricep Stretch

Stretching may be the answer if you are looking for a conservative treatment option to manage the pain of your  knee osteoarthritis.  Stretch, exercise, lose a little weight and you may not have to take as many medications.  You may even be able to avoid surgery.

This is one type of stretch for your quadriceps.  The Side Lying Quadricep Stretch:

1.  Lie on your side and support your head.

2.  Bend your top leg backward and grab your ankle.

3.  Pull until you feel a gentle stretch.

4.  Hold the stretch for ten seconds.

5.  Stretch each leg five times.
