💪 Unlock Tight Hips and Hamstrings: Boost Flexibility with Split Squats!

Are you looking to take your lower body workout to the next level? Look no further than split squats!

As physical therapists, we highly recommend this powerful exercise for building strength, stability, and balance.

Split squats target multiple muscle groups simultaneously, including your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and even your core. By maintaining a split stance, you'll engage your stabilizer muscles, improving overall fitness.

Watch Dr. Clayton's demo for tips on progressing through this exercise at different levels as you grow stronger.

Remember, always warm up before any exercise and check in regularly with a qualified professional, like a physical therapist, to ensure proper technique and prevent any injuries. 💪🏋️‍♀️

Clayton earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2020 from Wichita State allowing him to combine his love for the human body and helping clients improve their health while building strength and resiliency. “I thoroughly enjoy walking the path alongside my client and guiding him or her to being in control of his or her health.” After experiencing the “traditional” line of physical therapy in other outpatient clinics, he knew there was a more client-centered approach that could provide long-term access to care and improved results. “Our current medical system often prioritizes injections and surgeries over conservative care. After helping numerous clients eliminate pain and return to their activities, I’m confident there are many cases that can avoid unnecessary surgeries” Clayton is trained in a variety of manual therapy techniques and certified in Functional Dry Needling. In his time away from the clinic he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, with adventure and activities such as working out, hiking, kayaking, yard games, and anything new to stay active. He also enjoys vacations of all kinds from weekend road trips to cruises!
