Highly Recommended Stretches For Restless Leg Syndrome




Although it is commonly believed that RLS is a neurological problem, the evidence in this regard is inconclusive. There are also some who believe RLS to be a result of insufficient blood circulation. Whatever is the cause, exercise has been found to be very effective in dealing with the symptoms of RLS. Simple stretching exercise can help a lot in alleviating these symptoms. Here is a list of three stretches for you to get started;

Calf Stretch: Stand against a wall and stretch out your arms. Elbows are to be nearly straight, and palms shall be flat against the wall. Slightly bend the right knee and move the left foot back a foot or two so that the heel and foot are flat on the floor. Stay in this position for about 20-30 seconds. Come back to upright position and now repeat the stretch with the other leg. Do a few repetitions without over stretching yourself. 
Hip Stretch: Take a chair and place it against the wall for support. Raise your left foot and place it squarely on the chair. Now keeping the spine straight, slowly press your pelvis forward so that you can feel a stretch in the thigh of the right leg. Stay in this position for about 20-30 seconds. Come back to normal position and now repeat the stretch with the other leg. Do a few repetitions while alternating legs. 
Front Thigh Stretch: In this stretch one can stand parallel to a wall to balance themselves. Keeping one leg straight, bend the other leg so that you can hold its ankle and bring it closer to your hip. Stay in this position for about 20-30 seconds. Come back to normal position and now repeat the stretch with the other leg. Do a few repetitions like this.
