Top 5 Exercises For Spina...



Exercise can be helpful in managing spinal cord injury (SCI), a condition that involves damage to the spinal cord resulting in paralysis or loss of sensation in certain parts of the body.

1.Shoulder Abduction AAROM

Sit upright in a chair with your hands relaxed by your sides.
Have an assistant help to support your arm at your elbow and hand.
Slowly lift your weaker arm out to your side, keeping your elbow straight.
The assistant should help by supporting some of the weight of your arm.
Hold your arm above your head before slowly lowering it back to your side with support from the assistant.
Ensure your back and neck muscles remain relaxed as you move your arm.
Do not hunch your shoulder during the movement.

2.'ADL' Sit To Stand Transfer

Squatting helps to strengthen the quadriceps muscle that is very important for many daily activities such as sitting down and standing up from a chair, walking, and climbing stairs.
Stand upright with a chair behind you, and your arms out in front of you for balance.
Bend your knees, pushing your hips back behind you and leaning your body forwards, as though you are about to sit on the chair.
Come as close as you can to the chair without actually sitting on it and make sure that you do not feel unbalanced.
Be careful to keep your legs away from the back of the chair, so they don't press against it.
Stand back up, squeezing your buttock muscles to help with the movement.
Repeat the exercise, making sure you keep your back straight throughout.

3.Child's Pose

Sit upright on a firm surface or chair with your feet slightly wider than hip width apart.
Place a stability ball on the floor in front of you so that it sits between your knees.
Place your hands on top of the ball and slowly roll it forwards.
As you roll the ball forward, bend through your back and look down towards the floor.
Roll the ball back towards you as you return to sitting up tall.


Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
Gently tilt your pelvis as if you are imprinting your lower back into the floor and lift your hips up into the air while still holding your pelvis level.
Hold in the bridge position before you then lower, keeping your navel drawn in and slowly lowering your spine back down onto the floor, one vertebrae at a time.
Keep your buttocks tight, until your pelvis rests back down on the floor.

5.Neutral Spine Stabilization

Sit on a stability ball with both feet firmly on the floor.
Roll your hips forward and backwards until you find your neutral sitting position.
Hold this pose whilst you lift up one knee.
Bring the leg back down before lifting up the other knee.
Continue in this manner so that you are marching your legs.
