while there are several exercises and stretches that you can do with the client. However, I’d recommend not trying to “treat” their problem. Remember, as trainers we must operate within our scope of practice. I’d refer the client to Physical Therapy, if they already did physical therapy. What I do is have the client sign a form at their PT clinic then I contact their physical therapist. I find out what their limitations are from their PT.
Some physical therapists even have given me exercises and stretches that the clients should do at home. Often they don’t do them, so I incorporate it some in my training.
Good luck but just be careful because you’re putting yourself at risk if you’re trying to “treat.” Insurance will not protect you in such event.
