Aids in restoring spinal curves while gently stretching and relaxing the spine into optimal position. Pettibon Spinal Molding & Fulcrum Exercises are the exercises that have been found to be the most effective in restoring the normal/natural curve of the lower back.
The Fulcrum is a piece of high-density foam that is specifically made to keep the spine in its ideal curve and position. While lying on the floor, the peak of the fulcrum is placed below the last rib, the transition of the mid and lower back. A series of specific exercises are performed while on the fulcrum to increase the endurance and strength of lower back spinal stabilizer muscles and ligaments. You will be taken through a series of exercises from Beginner to Intermediate to Advanced. Depending on the level, there are 2 to 3 exercises that are performed for 10 repetitions on each side (usually taking about 5 minutes).
Spinal Molding is done after the exercises by lying on the foam for a total of 15-20 minutes (including exercise time) on the fulcrum.
Can be used for both spinal molding and/or fulcrum exercises.
