Don’t try this unless you are sure you won’t fall! This exercise is difficult, but highlights some principles to consider in our efforts at rehabilitation.
1. Do something to help train your balance system.
2. Single leg exercises prepare you for the mechanisms of injury that damage the knee, hip, ankle and spine.
3. Do something to train your hip abductor musculature. Weakness here predisposes to ACL injury, hip and back pain.
4. Do something to strengthen your scapular retractors. Postural issues contribute to neck, shoulder, hip and back pain.
5. Have some fun!
