Full Body Rotation Reinforce: Exercises to maintain optimal rotation in your body

Optimize full body rotation with Lift Clinic's team of physio, chiro, RMT and strength coaches!

In our last post of this series, we demonstrated various reset techniques that Lift clinicians may use to restore rotation in the spine, hips, and knees.

In this post, we’ll show some examples of reinforcing exercises to maintain and build on the gains. This is one of the most important steps in the treatment plan to lift you towards your movement goals. 

See what our clients have to say :

I’ve been going to Heather for a couple of weeks now to do physio pilates and I really enjoy it. She is good at explaining things and using my time productively and is helping me to target muscle development in new ways.

5/5

Great initial assessment with Henry. I feel like I’m beginning to understand my recovery and what I need to work on to improve my condition. I left with a great impression and immediately booked more visits.

What does it mean to reinforce and reload?

Reinforce = exercises or self treatments that help maintain the gains made from the reset techniques. 

Reload = exercises that develop strength, resilience, and coordination for the desired movement pattern.
