    One quick exercise that helped me more than anything. Lay flat on bed with head elevated. Place a rolled towel under your ankle so the foot is 3 to 4 inches off the bed. Now slowly tighten all the muscles in the leg forcing the knee toward the bed. Hold to count of 10, release, relax and repeat 5 times. Gradually build counts to reach 15 and 10 respectively.

    Another....lay face down with both legs hanging off from the waist down. Slowly relax and let the legs hang to count of 5 increase to ten and repeat 5 times increasing to 10
