Also known as the Jefferson Curl, this resisted spinal flexion exercise is designed to increase the loading capacity of the spine. This exercise should be completed under the guidance of a Physiotherapist following an assessment to determine it’s suitability.


  • Come into standing on a step with the feet hip width apart
  • Soften through the back of the knees
  • Using a weight prescribed, slowly begin to roll down through the spine as if you were peeling yourself off a velcro wall
  • Allow the hips to move backwards as the spine rounds
  • The weight will pass down towards the floor
  • Slowly begin to roll back up through the spine to ‘re-stick’ onto the wall
  • Repeat as per Physiotherapist guidelines
