Exercise of The Week: Thoracic Rotations

This week’s stretch is referred to as a Thoracic Rotation.

Start by laying flat on your back and slowly lift one knee to your stomach.

Make sure you keep your lower back flush to the ground. Then, slowly rotate the lifted knee across your body, moving towards the floor on the opposite side of your body. Only go as far as feels comfortable- if you feel pain, stop immediately. Hold the stretch for ten seconds.

Move your knee back, reversing the rotation and bringing you to the starting point.

Complete the stretch on the opposite leg. Repeat the stretch several times on each side.

Remember to contact your provider prior to beginning any new exercise regimen to avoid injury.
