OK. Hi, this is Dr. Sherri Stone from BioSpine Institute. Today, we are going to learn how to do a bridge. The bridge is important for getting in and out of bed. It helps work our entire low back and our leg muscles. And it can also help alleviate back pain. To do a bridge properly, lay on your bed or on a hard surface with your feet bent up. Slowly squeeze your back and your butt and lift up off of the floor. Your legs and your trunk should be parallel to each other, should be even with each other. Hold this for about 10 seconds. And then perform again. If this is too painful or difficult, try not holding. Try just going up and down.

If this still is too difficult, try just initiating the motion as this will help you shift in bed when you try to get in and out. For an added kick, if this is easy, bring your feet a little bit further out, feet and knees together. Squeeze them, and then hold them. [MUSIC PLAYING]
