Knee Rolling[1]

Benefits of exercise:

  • Helps maintain or increase your ability to rotate your trunk.

Repetition recommended:

  • 3 times on each side.

Hints:

  • When you are lying on your back on the floor, if the back of your head does not easily rest on the floor, then we would advise you to place a folded towel under your head to help you achieve a neutral spine.
  • Keep knees and ankles together.
  • Keep shoulders and arms resting in contact with floor.
  • Ensure slow, continuous movement throughout.

Caution:

  • If you experience dizziness, stop the exercise and contact your doctor.

Ask your Rheumatologist for biologics that slow down spinal fusion.
