Optimize your extension strength with Lift Clinic’s team of Vancouver physio, chiro, RMT and strength coaches!
Full body extension is one of the many assessments we perform during our full body screen. This movement requires adequate mobility from your upper back, lower back, and hips. These movements are essential for everyday tasks and athletic movements such as jumping.
Read through this post to learn about strengthening exercise that our physiotherapists, chiropractors, RMTs, and kinesiologists to improve extension strength, power, and coordination throughout the body.
This post is a continuation of our blog series on our full body assessment. If you haven’t already, visit our blog page to learn more about how we assess and treat other movements in the body.
For any given movement pattern, our treatment approach follows 4 primary steps:
Techniques used to test ranges of motion and find the root causes of limitations
Hands on treatment techniques used to improve & restore limited range of motion
Exercises or self treatments that help maintain the gains made from the reset techniques.
Exercises that develop strength, resilience, and coordination for the desired movement pattern.
