    Therapy Band

Securely attach a therapy band to the bottom of a leg of a chair or table. Attach the therapy band elastic loop to the middle of your right calf. Stand and face away from the waist-high chair or table. Your hands are placed behind you for support.

Next, swing your right leg away from you and then swing it back toward you, slowly crossing in front of your left leg to about a 10- or 20-degree angle. You'll feel the muscular contraction in the inside of your left thigh. Relax and return to the starting position.
