SPONDYLOLISTHESIS STRETCHES.⠀ .⠀ Spondylolisthesis is where one vertebrae is shifting forward (or backwards) relative to the vertebrae above or below it.⠀ .⠀ 👉 A big issue with spondylolisthesis is abnormal movement in the spine, which leads to INSTABILITY. So the back or neck becomes unstable, making it more prone to injury.⠀ .⠀ These stretches will help keep the spine in a neutral position, allowing for joint and muscle tension relief without exacerbating any vertebral slippage.⠀ .⠀ PELVIC TILT:⠀ 1️⃣ Lie flat on back, knees bent, and the feet flat against the floor.⠀ 2️⃣ Place hands under the curve of the lower back, or in line with belly button.⠀ 3️⃣ Pull the belly button towards the spine/hands using the ab muscles.⠀ 4️⃣ Focus on pressing the low back flat against the hands.⠀ 🔄 Hold for 10 to 15 seconds, and then relax. Do 10 repetitions.⠀ .⠀ DOUBLE KNEE TO CHEST:⠀ 1️⃣ Start with knees bent, and feet flat against the floor.⠀ 2️⃣ Lift both legs off the floor and pull them to the chest.⠀ 🔄 Hold for 10 to 15 seconds, and then relax. Do 5 repetitions.⠀ .⠀ GLUTEAL STRETCH:⠀ 1️⃣ Lie on the back with both knees bent. ⠀ 2️⃣ Rest the ankle of one leg against the knee of the other.⠀ 3️⃣ Grab onto the thigh of the bottom leg and pull it toward the chest.⠀ 4️⃣ Go till a strong stretch is felt in the buttocks and the hip.⠀ 🔄 Hold for 10 to 15 seconds, relax, then switch legs. Do 3 sets each side.⠀ .⠀ ⚠️ As always, if this causes more pain, stop immediately! It's not designed to cure spondylolisthesis or any issues/injuries that are currently causing it. Getting it checked out by a healthcare professional is always the best answer. ⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀ 📣 Don't forget to spread the good word! Questions or comments?

Great info for my fellow PTs. Thanks for the great stuff @fitnesspainfree #repost @fitnesspainfree with @get_repost ・・・ Patient Education is NOT more Effective then Placebo for patients with Acute Lower Back Pain⠀ .⠀ I thought this was a good article (brought to my attention by @mikereinold) because it's looking at a very hot topic. We're learning more and more about how what we say has an effect on patient outcomes (and this is getting very popular on instagram). This study looked at patient education (the principles taught in explain pain by Butler and Moseley) and it's effect on patients with acute lower back pain. These principles have been shown to be helpful in patients with chronic lower back pain in previous studies. ⠀ .⠀ The thought behind this study was that education may be helpful to reduce lower back pain symptoms over the course of time and decrease the risk of developing chronic lower back pain over time (The patients included in this study were high risk for acquiring chronic symptoms). Unfortunately, this was not the case (although the education group was helpful over the placebo group in some areas at specific points during the study).⠀ . ⠀ My thoughts are thought maybe chronic pain and acute pain are really just 2 different beasts where chronic patients may really need more education and acute patients not. My other thought is that all patients (both groups) were given advise from their primary care doc / physiotherapist to stay active, avoid bed rest, and were given the option of spinal manipulation, and/or simple analgesics. Maybe this is enough advise and treatment for these folks and they don't need more intensive care. Lastly, maybe we just aren't selecting the right patients yet who need education? I know sometimes I start explaining some basic pain principles to people and they already "get it" and probably didn't need the information in the first place.⠀ .⠀ What are your thoughts? Still educate these
It’s my favorite holiday! Had to kick off Thanksgiving Week with a little post about being thankful! Well... I’m thankful for healthy children 🙏🏼And the ability to go into work everyday, in order to not only provide for my family, but also make a difference in peoples lives. What are you thankful for?
