Nerve Glides with Straight Leg
With the Nerve Glides, various nerve pathways are stimulated and mobilized improving the mobility of muscles and tissues.
This exercise requires a healthy sense of personal responsibility and a cautious approach (similar to the finger-to-floor distance or reclination test).
Sit upright on a chair.
Extend one leg and flex the foot (pull the tip of the foot towards you).
Now slowly bend the upper body forward with the spine curled.
Let your head and arms hang loosely beside your body.
In this position you can now gently rock. Keep the foot flexed.
You may notice an immediate improvement, for example that the upper body can be lowered further.
Now switch sides and repeat.
30 – 60 seconds per leg
If there is a painful body condition, a complaint – then consult a doctor or therapist.
