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