Lumbar Mobility Exercise
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Nov 14, 2016
This is a highly effective mobility exercise to improve rotation through the lumbar and lower thoracic spinal regions.
Begin face down on a comfortable surface. Raise your right leg behind you and try to touch the ground to your left with your right foot - you can use your arms for balance and support as you do this. Repeat with your left foot, then alternate for several repetitions.
To work on mobility of your upper lumbar spine, thoraco-lumbar junction, and lower thoracic spine, repeat this drill with your arms comfortably placed on the ground above your head.
