Today we feature Scott Liptzin PT, DPT of the Long Island Stretching Institute in New York.  Dr. Liptzin is an expert in manual therapy as well as a therapeutic exercise.  Scott’s video content on TheSavagePhysioDoc on Instagram features manual techniques for pain and restriction in the back, shoulders, hips, legs, and all over the body.  In this video, Dr. Liptzin demonstrates manual stretching of the psoas muscle as well as the rectus femoris (quadriceps).  Watch below.

The patient in this video exhibits good flexibility of the rectus femoris and this allows Scott to get a good stretch on the psoas in this prone position.  By stabilizing the pelvis, Dr. Liptzin can ensure the quadriceps are not inhibiting the stretch on the iliopsoas muscle.
