» Active Leg Lowering to Bolster
This pattern is to improve hip mobility and stability for the active straight leg raise pattern with the use of a bolster.
Begin in the supine posture by positioning yourself face up so that your back is on the floor. Place both feet / Achilles on the bolster. Flex your hips to 90 degrees. If 90 degrees in not achieved flex as much as you can while keeping your legs straight. Once in this position lower one leg to the bolster while maintaining the other legs position. Work to get the heel to touch the bolster with a neutral pelvis. Return the leg to the start position and repeat the sequence
