Top 5 Fridays! 5 Step Exercise Progression for Lumbar and Single Limb Stance Stability


In the Eval, Reset, and Stabilize System, "stability" doesn't mean strength. I use stability to mean the area can accept load in a threat free and efficient manner. After Sidegliding in standing is equal or FN bilaterally, but if the LCAP test is positive, homework should include exercises designed to help single limb stance and the lumbar spine's ability to accept load on the involved side. Below is a sample of a progression I may prescribe in this case. The example is for loading the right LQ with the exception of Eccentric-Isometric Goblet Squats, which is for mobility and proprioception for equal loading.

Think of adding stability exercises especially when SGIS exercises help reset LQ complaints, but despite patient compliance and high dosage, their single limb stance stability makes them unload more during ADLs than the loading resets can compensate for.
