In this blog series, we will be visiting many of the basic stretches provided in an AIS treatment. This clip will introduce you to the first stretches I start with on the majority of my treatments. You should be focusing on the client being active and how we stabilize the body to isolate the intended muscle group being addressed.
This 2 minute and 11 second clip will demonstrate 2 primary stretches for gastrocnemius; one position on the table and the other leg raised up with the knee locked. The higher you raise the leg the deeper the stretch will be so adjust the leg hight and the pressure to the comfort of your client.
