Quad Stretch (Picture 1)
-Stand in front of an object and hold it with one hand (for balance if needed)
-Grab the top of one ankle with the hand opposite from the leg and pull your foot towards your buttock until your feel a gentle stretch in front of the thigh
-Hold the stretch, keeping your lower back neutral

Hamstring Stretch (Picture 2)
-Stand up straight

#TherapyThursday #Hiking #FunInTheSun #YYT

If you are planning on exploring Newfoundland and Labradors beautiful hiking trails this summer then you need to make sure your body is well prepared by doing some pre-hiking stretches to help decrease the risk of injury.

Below are two examples of simple pre-hiking stretches recommended by our McKenzie certified physiotherapist Nancy Hicks

1) Forward Lunge

Stand with both feet hip width apart.
Lunge forward, making sure you land with the heel and that your knee stays at 90 degrees or over your heel.
Move straight down, creating a 90 degree angle at both knees and at the hip.
Push through the heel and return to the standing position.
*Repeat with the other leg*
Return to the start position each time.

2) High Kicks

Face forward.
Keep leg straight and raise it as far in front of you as possible.
Release the leg back to the ground.
Repeat with other leg.
