Avant de commencer vos étirements, prenez soin de toujours réchauffer vos muscles. Vous pouvez le faire en marchant dans la pièce ou en utilisant un vélo stationnaire pendant quelques minutes. Si vous sentez beaucoup de raideurs, une douche ou un bain chauds peuvent aider à vous détendre. Faites vos exercices d’étirement lentement et maintenez la position jusqu’à sentir un niveau d’étirement moyen. L’étirement ne doit pas causer de la douleur.</p> <p>Les exercices d’étirement suivants vous aideront à étirer les muscles de votre dos et de vos hanches et à maintenir leur souplesse :</p> <ul> <li>Allongez-vous sur le dos et tirez un genou vers la poitrine tout en gardant l’autre jambe droite au sol.

Prenez une profonde respiration et bougez vos doigts vers l’avant pour augmenter l’étirement. Maintenez la position pendant 10 secondes. Ensuite, balancez le haut du corps de droite à gauche en même temps que vous étirez un bras un peu plus loin que l’autre, en alternance. Répétez l’exercice 10 fois avec chaque bras. <figure> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/IMD_enthesitis_child_pose_FR.jpg" alt="" /> </figure></li> <li>Mettez-vous à genoux, les mains au sol.

Placez votre jambe du même côté un peu plus vers l’avant. Pivotez votre corps en l’éloignant de votre bras jusqu’à sentir un étirement dans vos pectoraux. Maintenez pendant 10 secondes. Répétez trois fois avec chaque bras. <figure> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/IMD_enthesitis_doorway_twist_FR.jpg" alt="" /> </figure></li> <li>Placez-vous à genoux, un pied en avant sur le sol pour former un angle de 90 degrés avec votre pied. Appuyez les bras sur vos genoux pour stabiliser le tronc. Allongez la jambe au sol derrière vous. Assurez-vous que vos deux pieds sont pointés. Poussez vos hanches vers l’avant jusqu’à sentir un étirement dans vos fléchisseurs qui composent la partie avant de vos hanches. Contractez vos muscles abdominaux pour éviter d’avoir le dos arqué. Maintenez chaque étirement pendant 20 à 30 secondes.

Essayez d’approcher votre bassin aussi près que possible du mur. Pour augmenter l’étirement, entourez une serviette autour du pied en extension au mur et tirez-la doucement vers vous. Essayez de soulever votre talon du mur. Maintenez l’étirement pendant 60 à 90 secondes. Exécutez une fois avec chaque jambe. <figure> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/IMD_enthesitis_leg_stretch_FR.jpg" alt="" /> </figure></li> <li>Montez sur une marche en laissant dépasser un talon du bord. Appuyez-vous sur une rampe, un mur ou tout autre soutien approprié. Laissez le poids de votre corps étirer votre talon vers le sol. Maintenez pendant 20 à 30 secondes et répétez l’exercice trois à cinq fois avec chaque jambe. <figure> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/IMD_enthetisits_calf_stretch_FR.jpg" alt="" /> </figure></li> </ul>

When lifting and lowering your leg, make sure that you do not drop or spill the glass of water.

It includes any activity that can increase your breathing and heart rate continuously for a period of time. Aim to try any moderate to vigorous activity you enjoy for at least 60 minutes a day.</p><p>Good forms of aerobic exercise include:</p><ul><li>walking</li><li>swimming*</li><li>biking</li><li>hiking</li><li>dancing</li><li>hockey</li><li>cricket</li><li>soccer</li><li>roller blading</li></ul><p>*Swimming is a great exercise, but to keep your bones healthy, it is important to do some activities on land that involve walking or running.</p></ul>exerciseforarthritis https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/IMD_enthesitis_leg_stretch_EN.jpgExercises for enthesitis and arthritis
