Physical Therapy Videos Put Together By Real Orthopedic Specialists To Help You Recover And Stay Injury-Free.

Strengthen the muscles responsible for extending the shoulders.

This exercise is intended to strengthen the muscles responsible for extending the shoulders while engaging or involving the muscles of the core.


Back pain is a common complaint with many origins. The LumboTrain back support from Bauerfeind helps to support the low back and control the stresses that may produce pain.

For this exercise you will need an elastic band or tubing. Attach the band or tubing to a fixed stationary object or structure. Take one end of the tube or band in each hand. While standing on feet spread hip-width apart, squat slightly and stabilize your spine by contracting your core muscles.

From the position described, squeeze your shoulder blades together and draw your arms back against the resistance supplied by the band. Adjust resistance by moving closer to or farther away from the band’s point of attachment.

Perform all movements in a controlled fashion, relax and repeat as instructed.

  • No rigid parts - Does not cause the back or stomach muscles to weaken like rigid braces do. Soft, yet firm support provides stability but also allows full range of motion.
  • Fastenings and hand-straps - Adjustable and easy to put on and take off, even for people with arthritis.
  • Soft knit fabric - Breathable materials keeps moisture away from the body, exerts even pressure and adapts to your body shape.
