Physical Therapy in Merrick for Lower Back
Lie on your back with knees bent and your feet flat, and your hands resting on your hip bones.
Activate the inner unit and draw the right knee upwards towards the chest (hip to 90°), and drop the right leg out to the side, with control, as advised by your Summit Physical Therapy Physical Therapist.
Try to keep your hip bones pointing directly up to the ceiling throughout this exercise, particularly when you switch legs.
Breathe throughout the exercise. Try to keep the large abdominals relaxed, don’t let the stomach bulge forward.
Work up to 5 lift/fall-outs to each side before having to re-activate the inner unit.
Repeat as advised by your Physical Therapist.
