Swimmer's stretch

For certain sports, having a completely full range of flexion is important. We're impressed with our patients' ability to come up with variations on the flexion stretch.
Here's a photo of one of our patients from Hawaii, a triathlete, who has found a novel twist on the flexion stretch. This method has the advantage of allowing him to relax and apply gentle pressure over ten minutes. The picture speaks for itself.
