Knowing how to progress and regress exercises for lower limb strengthening can be difficult especially when catering for co-morbidities and individual differences. Thankfully Lee Herrington is here to help!
The gluteus medius plays an important role in lower limb and pelvis stability and it has been linked to many lower limb conditions. When treating a patient with knee or hip problems it is important to progress the strengthening exercises according to the patient’s ability and the amount of load it places on the muscle. The therapist should consider the patient’s history, pain, current functional ability, the purpose for the exercise, the load of the exercise, the load the patient can handle, and the functional ability the patient needs to return to, before prescribing exercises.
This sounds difficult but no need to worry, with the help of this course, available on Physioplus now, Lee can talk you through all you need to know.
