Example text

This approach is very successful as it addresses the length changes of all muscles involved and is particularly important in cases where the short muscle causes compensatory movement at a joint (or joints). For example, if short hamstrings cause compensatory lumbar flexion, the back extensors as well as the knee extensors should be contracted while stretching the hamstrings. Principles of manual muscle testing determine the degree of muscle strength. Sudden applied pressure can break the pull of an apparently ‘strong’ muscle.

If training experience and training age are high, the client may progress through each phase at a faster rate. However, it is the role of the therapist to determine accurately whether the client is ready for progression, by objective feedback (re-evaluation) and subjective feedback (observation and perceived exertion). Ultimately, the progress and success of any corrective exercise programme will be subject to individual compliance and the development of a practical home exercise programme. The list of exercises contained in the later chapters are by no means exhaustive, although they do provide the therapist with a basic library from which to start prescription.

For example, when bending down to pick up a heavy object from the floor, the ascent should be initiated by a posterior pelvic tilt. This action is precipitated by contraction of the gluteals, a muscle group that is commonly weak. In the presence of gluteal weakness, the lumbar erectors will preferentially recruit, producing large and potentially damaging amounts of shear force through the lumbar vertebrae. Instructing clients in basic lifting patterns will facilitate optimal learning; if the client is particularly weak or shows signs of atrophy in the gluteals, isolation exercises could be 14 Corrective Exercise: A Practical Approach prescribed to stimulate strength and hypertrophy as quickly as possible.
