Back Exercises after Surgery
Page 7 of 8
Continue with the exercises of the previous phases and add the following.
Lie on your back with your knees bent. Hold a ball with your hands on your stomach. Stabilise the pelvis by tugging in your navel. Push the ball up towards the ceiling until your elbows are straight. Move the ball slowly over your head to the mat or as far as possible and then slowly back again without loosing the position of your pelvis. Repeat 15 times.
The same position as Exercise 8.
After pushing the ball towards the ceiling, move the ball as far as possible to the left and then to the right. Maintain the position of the pelvis at all times.
Repeat 10 times to both sides.
