Buy Getting Up Off Floor Worksheet"Help, I've fallen and I can't get up" has become a common quote to make fun of, mostly from the over dramatic acting. However, not being able to get up off the floor can be very scary, and not as easy as people would think, especially with an injury or arthritis. This video will show you a simple way to get up off the ground without straining your body

If you are on the ground, get on your bottom with your feet in front of you. Now pull your feet in, and slightly to one side. Once you have done this, roll over onto your feet and knees, and bring your arms forward until you are on all fours, or quadruped. Bring your "good or strong" leg forward with your knee bent into a lunge position. Finally put both hands on your good leg, and push upwards with your arms and legs.
