Is that a Stretch, or is it Nerve Tension?

Is that a stretch you’re feeling, or is it 𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 💥? Part 2. (for part one check instagram for the video)

1️⃣ Lay on your back with your pelvic floor + core engaged, with a neutral spine and neck. Bring one leg towards your face with a pointed toe until you feel a stretch in your hamstring.⁣

2️⃣Flex your foot. Do you feel a change in sensation, or an increase in your “stretch”?⁣

3️⃣Keeping your foot flexed, bring the leg back down to the ground so you are laying on your back (change nothing except the angle at your hips). Does the added or increased sensation/“stretch” from flexing the foot go away?⁣

If you said yes to the above two questions, then the added “stretch” you are feeling when you flex your foot is actually nerve tension 😱❌. ⁣

Go back and look at the last video and read the caption for more info. ⁣

Follow for nerve glide videos to come to help with this issue 👏. ⁣

If you have pain or injury, get it checked by a professional 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️👩🏼‍⚕️. ⁣

This is just the basics of nerve tension! So if your flexibility is not improving no matter what you try, or you aren’t seeing the progress you would expect, hit me up for an appointment. I work late nights and weekend so no excuses! 😁⁣
