Lie on your back with arms resting at your sides, palms up. Bend hips and knees, placing feet on flat surface. “Pull” your belly button inward and execute by lifting your hips off the surface to make a bridge. Do not arch your back and squeeze glutes during movement. Lower slowly and repeat 5 times. Bridge - Arms Flat EXERCISE OF THE MONTH “I tripped up a step and re-injured my already sore lower back to the point where I could not walk, or even breathe, without pain. Lying down seemed the only solution, as living on pain medication was not an option. My internist suggested physical therapy, and after speaking with some friends for recommendations, they said the best place is Excel in Berwyn. Scheduling an appointment was a breeze. Kathy set it up, sent all of the paperwork electronically and made my evaluation appointment. The facility has a great vibe and the staff is friendly and supports one another. In my mind, this atmosphere aids in the healing process. Steven Lee was assigned as my therapist and was very knowledgeable, personable and passionate. He asked me questions about my pain, when it is most painful, etc., and it was in that evaluation that I was able to finally understand my pain. He listened carefully and often repeated my own descriptions back to me when talking about the next step in the therapy process. Each therapy session started simply and the goal of each exercise was explained to me and demonstrated with the proper technique. Steven would check in on how I was doing and was sensitive to my comfort level. He was no pushover either! The exercises were cumulative and before I knew it, I was able to lie down and get up from the table without pain. The final test was my trip to Maine -an entire week on my own without PT. I knew what to do if there was a flare-up -check my posture, do back extensions, do the Cobra. It worked! I was not at Excel just for the therapy. Steven taught me strategies to use to avoid future pain and what to do if the pain came back. I visited my physician and she was very pleased with the results. Thank you so very much, Steven Lee, for your exceptional diagnostic skills, teaching skills and professional care.” - A.S. (Berwyn, PA) “...before I knew it, I was able to lie down and get up from the table without pain.”
