Hicks et al. submitted patients with LBP to an 8-week stabilization exercise program. Eighty-three percent of the subjects reported functional improvement in terms of the Oswestry score. The predictors of success were:
- age lower than 40
- average straight-leg raising greater than 91°
- positive prone instability test
- presence of aberrant movement patterns
You can review these assessments in the ChiroUp clinical evaluation tab. Use these tests and the pre-programmed exercises for the diagnosis “spinal instability” and 83% of your patients will improve. The diagnosis of “spinal instability” can be used in conjunction with other primary diagnoses (Lumbar Disc Lesion, Strain/Sprain, Segmental Dysfunction, etc…).
