- Stand facing a wall with your hands on the wall at about eye level. Put the leg you want to stretch about a step behind your other leg.
- Keeping your back heel on the floor, bend your front knee until you feel a stretch in the back leg.
- Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 2 to 4 times.
Talk with your doctor or physical therapist if you have questions about how to do this or any other exercise.
