Lie flat on your back with your leg elevated and positioned in a doorway as shown. “Scoot” toward the doorframe until your hamstring is taut. Contract your hamstring by attempting to push your heel into the doorframe for seven seconds. Relax and gently slide your buttocks toward the doorframe while keeping your knees straight to increase the stretch. Repeat three contract/relax cycles on each side, twice per day or as directed. Alternately, you may provide your own resistance by looping a belt or towel around your heel instead of using a doorframe.
