Tip Tuesday….Straight Leg Raises!!

#TipTuesday…Straight Leg Raises! SLR’s are a great exercise if you have any knee pain or you have weakness in your hip.

Straighten your leg. Flex up your foot. Bend your opposite knee.


Raise the straight leg in the air only to the level of the bent knee.


Slowly lower. Reset and flex your foot each time before you raise your leg in the air.     This activates your quads. Repeat this exercise 10 times. Perform 3 sets.

If you have back pain with this exercise stop immediately. A weak back may have difficulty with this exercise and be exacerbated. You can make an appointment with your local Physical Therapist and I can get you pain free and doing the things you need to do! #SLRs#straightlegraises #HipExercise #KneeExercise #Hips #Knees#quads #BackPain #KneePain #HipPain #Strengthen #Condition#GetStronger #PhysicalTherapyWorks #PhysicalTherapy#PhysicalTherapySanPedro #SanPedro #drjanaebrown#www.drjanaebrownpt.com #424.337.1980
