How to do a Lumbar CAR (controlled articular rotation)

The basic articulations: There are five vertebrae in the lumbar spine (low back). These joints need to be articulated like every other joint in the body. If an individual maintains a “neutral” spine, avoids “rounding” or is constantly trying to sit up straight (extension), the … Read more

How to articulate the Toes (controlled articular rotations)

The basic articulations: Flexion Extension Abduction Adduction Adduction is incredibly difficult to accomplish. Try squeezing a pen or small object between the toes to begin activation. The Toe CAR (controlled articular rotation) Start standing or with the feet suspended Move the big toe opposite the … Read more
