  2. Place the other foot in the boot used with the tower.
  3. Place your booted foot on the tower starting at the level advised by your therapist or at the level where an arch begins to form in your lower back.
    • Relax your upper body and let your body adjust at each new level.

    • Pay more attention to the flattening of your back than the specified time.

Fun Facts

Sitting for extended periods throughout the day causes a number of negative side effects to our posture, including loss of our designed spinal curves and short, tight groin muscles. This E-cise helps to reverse the negative effects caused from sitting all day. It also helps to re-educate our hips how to flex and extend properly when we walk.
