Straight leg raise correction: Passive Leg Lowering Progression

Here is another one of my favourite exercises to give to my chiropractic patients for improving their ability to perform a straight leg raise.

Passive Leg Lowering Progression

  1. Lay on your back.
  2. Raise raise both legs up and rest one of them on a pole or door jam.
  3. Keeping the legs straight, lower the other leg down to the ground.
  4. Repeat 10 times on each side
  5. Test to see if your active straight leg has improved
  6. Repeat daily at least 3 times a day

Did this exercise help your ability to touch your toes?
