The purpose of this lab is to define proximal
stability and to provide practical applications for
clinical assessment, rehabilitation, and training
practices. I will present recommendations from the
literature describing appropriate assessment and
training practices for proximal stabilization.
Literature supported assessments and training
techniques will be demonstrated and practiced.
Depictions will be made regarding pelvic, spinal
(core), and trunk stability assessment and training
techniques. The participants will be divided into
small groups in which the assessment and training
protocols can be instrumented and reinforced.
