Prone Heel To Butt Assessment

The prone heel-to-butt assessment is used to measure quadricep mobility. To begin, you will attach a stretch strap or dog leash around your foot and then lay down on your stomach with the strap comfortably around your toes. You will then gently pull your heel towards your hips while working to keep the hip comfortably on the ground and not allowing excessive arching in your back. Be sure to compare side to side to see if you notice any differences. Where do you feel the stretch, if any? Is there any discomfort in your knee? Prehab Goals & Normative Values: Achieve heel-to-butt on both sides without pain or discomfort. Take the assessment, write down your score, and track your progress throughout the program.
