Hip Flexor Stretch

Start in a lunge position as outlined in the picture, with a cushion underneath the knee. Keep the pelvis neutral and gently move your torso forward. Holding the foot or resting it on a chair (making the knee flex) can intensify the stretch. A gentle stretch should be felt in the front of the leg.

Hamstring Stretch

Lying on the ground straighten affected leg straight up against the wall. Push gently into the wall for 6 seconds then relax while moving forward to increase the stretch and repeat.
