Flexion Gapping

By Coach Lisa Mobility, Specialty Courses Comments Off on Flexion Gapping

Flexion Gapping: This is a simple technique to get some space into the knee joint and deal with tight calf muscles, too.

Place a ball or rolled-up face cloth or hand towel behind your knee (if using a ball, place it just to the medial or lateral side of the soft knee “pit”, not directly in it.

Using your arms pull your lower leg into extreme flexion, (heel toward your rear).

Flex and extend your foot for additional compression of the tissues. 1-2 minutes per leg.
