Physiotherapy, Injury Prevention & Fitness Recommendations:

  • Stop if the stretch causes pain
  • Perform the stretch in a safe environment to avoid the risk of a fall or injury
  • Recommended stretch for use within a warm-up or cool down
  • As instructed by a skilled physiotherapist, the stretch is beneficial for injury prevention, to aid recovery from specific injuries, enhancement of the injury healing process, elongates shortened muscles, reduces soft tissue tightness and alleviates joint stiffness.
  • This stretch might be useful for lower back muscle strains & ligament sprains, hamstring strains & ilio-tibial band syndrome
