Quadriceps Stretching: A Version for the Chronically or Very Tight
I ntroduced by researchers from Temple University, Philadelphia, this version of quadriceps stretching can be very powerful in loosening up chronically tight quadriceps or post operative knee surgery. Of course, the individual physical therapist or physician will have to decide if it is appropriate for you. There should never be any pain with stretching. It is totally appropriate to start with the 2 minute heat and 1 minute ice ratio in any amount and then gradually add more time if needed to achieve the desired stretch. This video demonstrates the home version commonly used.
