IMG_0223 IMG_0224



Lying on your back. Bend knees with feet together or shoulder width apart and feet resting on a box. Flatten the spine and slowly curl the bottom up from the floor and hold the position.

You are also working the gluteal muscles and hamstring so gently squeeze the buttocks as you lift higher.

The neck and shoulders should be relaxed and resting on the floor. Slowly release the spine, uncurling one vertebrae at a time until back is resting on the mat.

Your physiotherapist will advise you how long to hold and how many repetitions to perform.

Physiotherapy, Injury Prevention & Fitness Recommendations

If you experience pain or discomfort during the exercise, stop and consult your physiotherapist.

As instructed by a skilled physiotherapist, the exercise is beneficial for injury prevention, to aid recovery from specific injuries, enhancement of the injury healing process, elongates tight muscles, reduces soft tissue tightness and alleviates joint stiffness.
