The Quadriceps muscle group is located at the front of the thigh. We use the quadriceps muscles while walking, running, standing and when moving into a seated position. Tension or shortening of the quadriceps can sometimes contribute to knee pain. It is important to stretch the quadriceps muscles regularly to avoid muscle imbalances and the development of postural dysfunctions.
