Clients released from rehabilitation into the fitness environment are often progressed too quickly and do not have the foundational movement "big rocks" that need to be restored. Develop a regressive approach to common movements and progress the client with strategies to allow the foot and ankle complex, hip and thoracic spine to gain movement in three planes. Learn how to regress lunge, squat, abdominal and shoulder exercises from the postrehabilitation phase to a progressive, dynamic movement pattern, allowing the client to return to play.
