Psoas Stretch

Chair Stretch

This stretch is to help loosen your hip flexors.  It is easy and quick.  This stretch in conjunction with others to help keep your hamstrings and quadriceps can help ease the pain associated with your osteoarthritis of the knee.

Hip Flexor Chair Stretch:

1.  Find a sturdy chair – no wheels.

2.  Place one knee on the chair.  Keep the majority of your body weight on the leg you are standing on.

3.  Slowly move your hips forward – do not rotate – until you feel a gentle stretch.

4.  Hold the stretch for ten seconds.

5.  Stretch each side five times.
