(Post 86) Therapeutic Exercise # 1

Training to lift properly with squats is the first strategy to strengthen the leg muscles and to increase range of motion at the ankles, knees and hips so we can protect our spinal discs from getting damaged.

Points to remember:

1. Keep your spine in neutral.

2. Sit back and do not bend your lower back.

3. Use your hips, knees and ankles to get you there.
