Stretches to Prevent an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
Stretching your quadriceps and hamstrings can help prevent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries.
Do these stretches gradually. Do not push or bounce the stretch. You should feel a stretch, not pain. Exhale as you begin the stretch. While you hold the stretch, inhale. Exhale as you relax.
Contract your stomach muscles during this stretch so you do not arch your back.
