EGOSCUE - Static Wall

How to Perform this E-cise™

  1. Lie on your back with your legs pointed straight up and against the wall, upper body relaxed with arms out to sides at about 45 degrees and palms facing up feet should be hip width apart.

    • When getting into this position, get your hips as close as possible to the wall, so once you are in position your butt is also as close as possible to the wall.

    • If your hips are lifting off the floor then scoot your butt back until you are able to place your hips flat. As you get more functional, your hips will sit closer to the wall and be flat on the floor at the same time.

  2. In this position tighten your thighs and pull ALL of your toes down and back evenly towards your face.

    • Your feet must be pointed straight(parallel) for your hips to properly do the needed work to stabilize your spine.

  3. Hold as directed on your menu.

    • This exercise promotes thoracic extension while limiting the rotation ability of the lower load joints.
