Standing Multi-Segmental Extension and Rotation
This functional movement assessment demonstrates how to assess standing multi-segmental extension and rotation. These movements can be used to assess the patient’s ability to dissociate the lumbar spine from the pelvis. Multi-segmental rotation looks at both trunk and pelvic rotation on each other. This movement can be broken down even further by observing how the pelvis moves on a stable trunk and vice versa. Check out the video by Dr. Josh Bruner, DPT, OCS, CSCS as he explains how to complete these movements and what to look for!
