Physical Therapy in Merrick for Lower Back
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat and your hands resting on your hip bones.
Think about keeping your hip bones pointing directly up to the ceiling throughout this exercise.
Activate the inner unit and drop the right leg out to the side, with control, making sure your left leg does not move.
Stop as soon as you feel your hips roll to the right.
Keep breathing and draw the leg back upright. Repeat to the left. Keep the hip flexors and buttocks relaxed. Don’t hold your breath.
Work up to 5 fall outs to each side before having to re-activate the inner unit. Repeat as advised by your Physical Therapist.
