Single Leg Stance Assessment and Lumbar Instability

The couch potato takes 2-3000 steps per day. That’s a lot of repetition. Imagine the repetition for those who get their 10,000 steps per day?

Since the majority of our clients walk, the Single Stance is an insightful way to see how the body responds to the forces acting on it during midstance in the gait cycle.

In this video, we are going to dive deeper into what we can observe from the back view of this assessment, particularly as it relates to the coupled relationship of the pelvis and lumbar spine in the transverse plane.

I’ll show you a quick review of the key points, and then share some actual client assessments of what we found. It will make sense why this assessment can be so insightful.
