Posture Deviation - Genu varum & genu valgum Part 3
Here are some more exercises and stretches that can bring your knees closer together:
- Side lying hip adduction
Starting on lying on your side with both of your legs straight. Bend your top leg at the knee and place the leg toward. Your foot should be planted on the ground to support your body as shown. Slowly raise up your bottom leg towards the ceiling and hold 5 seconds. Keep your knee straight the entire time. Repeat 10 times.
- Modified piriformis stretch
Start on your back with your legs extended. Bend one side of the knee and lift the knee up. Place your hands around the knees and pull the knee towards the opposite upper corner. You can apply slight pressure to deepen the stretch. Hold for 30 seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat 3 times for each side.
