Sometimes coming up with exercises in your clinic room can be difficult. Even more difficult is finding some that you can recommend as good home care.
Last week we went over how to do a great exercise called the “Dead Bug”.
This week we’re basically going to flip that over and progress the exercise to something called the “Bird Dog”.
What I love about these, is you can do it right on your table, and they’re easy for a patient to do at home.
Once your patient is confident with doing this exercise on top of the swiss ball, we can make things more difficult by removing the swiss ball.
This can still be easily done on your table in your clinic room, but it’s just a bit more difficult and will build a bit more confidence than when you’re using the swiss ball.
Now we can ramp things up just a bit more after your patient is confident with these movements.
By using an exercise band we can make things just a little more difficult and still build more confidence in movement with our patients.
Give these a try.
Doing movements like these will reinforce everything you did with your hands on the table and bring about greater outcomes with your patients.
