As a matter of fact, studies indicate that stretching out inflammation not only provides immediate benefits but is key for prevention. These simple stretching techniques can significantly alleviate inflammation of the legs and are suitable for most individuals.

  1. Toe Flex While straightening the leg, point the toe up and then down, stretching the muscle. This can be done lying down or in a standing position. This key stretching move can help with inflammation in the hamstrings and calf muscles of the legs.
  2. Pull Back Gently grasping the foot and pulling it back while bending the knee can help stretch out inflammation of the upper leg. It may help to hold on to something with the opposite hand for balance.
  3. Knee Flex This stretch should be done while lying on the back with the knees bent up. One leg at a time, he should raise the foot off the floor, while pulling the knee in a small angle. The leg should be bent up and down, holding the leg in the upward position for a few seconds at a time.
  4. Lunges This may be one of the best stretches for inflammation of the legs. The key lies in not overdoing it. This stretch should be performed as it normally would be, only with less impact. Instead of opting for the "burn", this can be accomplished by decreasing the range of the lunge.
