Side Lying Femoral Nerve Tensioner

Side Lying Femoral Nerve Tensioner

  • HOW: Start by lying on your side and placing a band or strap around the foot that is on top. Tension the nerve at the bottom by bending your knee and pulling your foot with your top hand pulling the strap backwards. At the same time, tilt your head forwards and hold that position for a few seconds and relax. 
 
  • FEEL: You may feel a stretch in many places, but most commonly it will be in the front or outside portion of your thigh. 
 
  • COMPENSATION: Make sure to create tension at both ends at the same time.
