Traditional training and rehab programs are dominated by the sagittal plane, yet the body is an integrated unit, existing in 3 planes of motion. This workshop will demonstrate methods to assess and work in an integrated, triplane mindset, specifically in the frontal plane. Through a principle-strategy-application process will show how a simple movement such as a lunge can be utilized as an assessment, an exercise, and a therapeutic intervention. In addition, strategies for regression and progression will be discussed in order to create a unique program based on the thresholds of the individual.
Learn easy practical solutions for patients and clients:
- Common lunges can mimic the first transformational zone (TZ) of gait, and therefore can be used as assessment tools.
- Improving frontal plane motion will translate into improved sagittal and transverse plane motion
- The body doesn’t know what a muscle is, but it knows what motion is and how to control it
- Injury typically occurs when forces are presented to the body that the body can’t handle, as they’re still being presented.
- Recognize that the hip works in 3 planes of motion Examine fascial connection and its relationship to integrated movement
- Describe how bones move, joints feel (or perceive), and muscles react to movement
