Bent knee lift

Physiotherapy in Vernon 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 physiotherapist.

Our staff and patients are our top priority and we will be taking all the necessary precautions and following guidelines set out. We look forward to your next visit.
