Quadriceps – Front of thigh

Why Stretch?

Stretching exercises encourage lengthening of your muscles and associated tendons.  Short and tight muscles can lead to pressure on nerves and pain.  By its effect of lengthening muscles, stretching promotes flexibility and full range of motion about your joints.

Hold the stretch for 15 seconds in each direction 3-4 times per day
