Knee Extension Test Assessment

This assessment will check in on your ability to achieve full knee extension with an active quadriceps. You will start by sitting on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you. Next, squeeze your quad attempting to lift your heel off the floor while the upper thigh remains in contact with the floor, so that we avoid a straight leg raise motion and isolate this to the quad and true end range knee extension. Repeat the assessment on both sides. Prehab Goals & Normative Values: You should be able to lift your heel off the ground on both legs and achieve the same heel height. Take the assessment, write down your score, and track your progress throughout the program.
