For the sake of preventing the imbalance of muscles that are possible to be caused by some damages, it is necessary to make the antagonist become strong. Six section gymnastics, which is written by Dr. George Sheehan, is thought to be the best stretching gymnastic as well as comprehensive degree. What he promoted in the first place is to stand three feet away from the wall or the tree, so as to extend your calf and the tendon of your heels. Your two feet need to stand in a straight way, let your body to bend ahead, and then quit the action as soon as your legs are terrible.
Adhere to ten seconds and then relax in the next step, repeat it for five or six times. If you are suffering from the knee cartilage softening disease, it would be painful if you do such exercises. This disease will be referred to in the next chapter. In this case, you can make a useful change. Under the sick knee, put some pillows and then lie low on the floor, allow this foot to bear some weight, unbend your legs at last. In this way, we can greatly reduce the pressure on the knee.
Secondly, in order to stretch your hamstring tendon, that is the back of the thigh muscles, legs need to stand up straightly, then put one foot on the waist-high table. Supposing the weight is too much for you, you also can choose to lay it on a position that is lower. Make your head bend to the knees until you feel the muscles are pulled very tight, stop at that point and adhere to ten seconds.
If you like, hold the legs or feet with your hands to stabilize your own body, and then relax. Each leg would like to experience about five or six times to repeat drills. The physical therapy expert Ted Corbett said, he believed that the following training method would be more effective. What you have to do first is to bend your knees and body, make a contact between the ground and your hands, following to prop up the ground with ten fingers. Push up the body until you feel your hamstring tendon is pulled very tight and stop, hold for a few seconds. Hands off the ground slowly, spines to spines to make the body straight up until you stand straight up. Make a repetition again and again for five or six times by using this approach.
