Roller Massager+ Elongated Hip Flexor Release

Self-release of the hip flexor muscle; elongated position

Roller Massager+ Elongated Hip Flexor Release
Stand facing away from a ledge or step, with foot (of leg with hip flexor to be rolled) propped up behind body. Stance leg is slightly bent and knee of propped leg is bent approximately 90 degrees. Grasp both ends of the Thera-Band Roller Massager+ so that ridged roller is positioned straight across groin / hip flexor region of leg that is propped. Gently roll the Massager+ up and down along the path of the hip flexors. In general, longer strokes in this elongated position will work more superficial layers of the tissue. To further elongate muscles, prop foot on higher ledge. Conversely, lower foot height to decrease stretch placed on muscles.
