For our last week of spinal mobility month, we are mobilizing our low backs by isolating lumbar spine movement. We are also trying a functional balance exercise that incorporates spinal twisting.
This week, we are focusing on full spinal movement. Try out this first foam roller exercise to help increase rotation of your spine. Then try the 2nd video to help you find motion in the sagittal plane (front to back).
For this final week of Spine Month we are focusing on whole spine movements. The Spinal Twist stretch is up there in the top 10 of stretches. This full-body stretch is perfect after activity or right before bed. The Wall Peels exercise helps bring fluidity, movement, and awareness of movement to your spine.
