You're going to start the stretch byholding onto a wall or stable surface and slowly cross your right or leftleg over your other leg and slowly bend your knees and shift yourweight towards the back of your hips you should feel stretch deep in yourgluts
and this is where your piriformis muscle and sciatic nerve run. uh. hold for fifteen thirty secondsnow runners know this stretch as a figure 4 stretch because you'reactually making a 4 with your body. You should feel a difference between your affected side and unaffected side meaning that you're affected side will betighter and will benefit from holding thestretch longer than the unaffected side. It's a good idea to compare your two sides because it will give you a good indication of
the improvement of your affected leg After fifteenthirty secondsrepeat the same steps on the other leg. For a deeper stretch you can drive your hips back and or use your freehand and push awayyour knee even though one side feels tighter in a few days or weeks you should noticea difference not only in the flexibility
but also the pain you're experiencing as you become more flexible, the painwill start to subside continue to stretch most days of the week, if not everyday Thanks for watching. I hope this tutorialtutorial was informative and helpful.

Water Exercise Basic Walking Aquatic Therapy Ask Jo
Cannon ball! Hey everybody, it's Jo!It's a beautiful day to do some aquatic therapy. A big thank you to my uncle for letting usborrow his pool for the day. Today, I am going to show you some aquatic therapy gait exercises.This is just to get you warmed up, get everything stretched, get everything moving, and thenI'll show you some other tutorials for the exercises, and everything. In the pool, it's very easyto not have proper technique. It 's very easy to just swing your body, be all over the place,but it's really important to work on your technique because you don't have to worryabout falling. So it's all about exaggerating your techniques and getting the stretchesyou need. So starting off it's going to be
simple walking forwards and backwards, andsideways, and some marching. But it's really important to do the proper technique. Whenwe are walking, naturally we hit our heel first, and then roll off onto our toes. Ifwe have an injury, then we don't necessarily do that all the time. So just exaggeratedthe movement. Try and keep your body upright while you are walking. Hitting your heel first,and rolling off onto your toes. Heel first rolling onto your toe, keeping your body upright.Again, heel first, push off on your toes. See, I'm still keeping my upper body niceand straight. I'm not leaning forward, I'm not leaning back. I'm keeping my body upright.Do that about 3 or 4 laps. Then you are going
to go backwards. Now your toes are going tohit first. So toe, roll back on your heel. Toe, roll back on your heel. It's really easyto start leaning back. Try not to lean back. If you leaning back, you're going too fast.Toe, heel. Toe, heel. After you do that about 3 or 4 times, the next one is going sideways.Sidestepping. With sidestepping, it really for people to end up turning their foot out.You want to keep your toes pointed straight the whole time. Because if you turn your footout, you are using different muscles. We want to work the outside of our muscles right now.So keep those toes pointing forward, not out, but stepping with those toes forward the wholetime. Sidestepping, keeping that upright posture.
Tuck those tummy muscles in, and then comeback. Then the next one is going to be marching. Bringing the knee up, alternating sides. Sopulling that knee up as close to the surface as you can get. Again, not leaning back, notleaning forward, keeping that body upright. Really driving that knee up. So those werethe basic gait exercises in the pool. Those were your aquatic therapy exercises.
