Straight Leg Raise: Lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.
Hello... You mentioned meniscal tear as diagnostic condition... That's why you are having are having jerky feeling... Depending on grade of tear treatment will be decided... If it's mild tear rest to leg and physiotherapy is sufficient. If it's 3rd degree tear surgery is only option.. X ray is required to diagnose ..
