Ipsilateral Supine Nerve Tensioners

  • WHY: This exercise is great for tensioning the nerves in the lower body. This is a more aggressive way to get the nerves to mobilize compared to the previously performed Nerve Gliders.
  • HOW: While laying face up bring one knee in towards you chest. While your knee is bent bring your foot away from you towards the floor (plantarflexed), then straighten the knee as you bring your foot facing you (dorsiflexion).
  • FEEL: You should feel a pull in the back of your leg. This should NOT create lingering discomfort, if so move through less range of motion as you perform this exercise.
