 Double Arm Raises[1]

Benefits of exercise:

  • Helps maintain or increase your ability to raise your arms forward and above your head.

Repetition recommended:

  • 3 to 5 times.

Hints:

  • If the back of your head does not easily rest on the floor, place a folded towel under your head to help you achieve a neutral spine.
  • Keep elbows straight throughout the movement.
  • Keep head resting in contact with floor.
  • Maintain neutral spine throughout movement – do not allow the low back to over arch.
  • Ensure slow, continuous movement throughout.

Ask your Rheumatologist for biologics that slow down spinal fusion.
