Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch

Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch

A kneeling hip flexor stretch is an effective stretch for limbering up the muscles in front of your hips.  Tight hip flexors will cause undue tension on your knees.  The knee is a complicated joint and the surrounding musculature plays an important role on how the knee bends and functions.  Stretching these muscles will help your osteoarthritis of the knee.

Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch:

1.  Kneel on your right knee – use a towel as a cushion.

2.  Place your left foot forward, and bend your knee.

3.  Place your right hand on your right hip to keep your back straight.

4.  Lean forward until you feel a gentle stretch.

5.  Hold the stretch for ten seconds.

6.  Stretch each side five times.
