Upper trunk flexors and rotators are resisted at the same time as lower trunk extensors and rotators. General goals: Improve stability (co-contraction of antagonists), strength, endurance, ROM, and coordination; promote relaxation and decrease pain. Indications: Impaired strength and coordination, limitations in ROM; impaired stabilization control and balance. • Repeated stretch (repeated contractions): Repeated isotonic contractions are performed, directed to the agonist muscles, initiated by a quick stretch and enhanced by resistance.

Joint mobilization uses slow, sustained traction to improve mobility, relieve muscle spasm, and reduce pain. Precautions: Contraindicated in hypermobile or unstable joints. Inhibitory Pressure Stimulus: Deep, maintained pressure applied across the longitudinal axis of tendons; prolonged positioning in extreme lengthened range. Activates muscle receptors (golgi tendon organs) and tactile receptors (Pacinian corpuscles). Has both segmental (spinal cord) and suprasegmental (eNS higher centers) effects.

The patient's environment is adapted to facilitate practice and learning of skills, ease of movement, and optimal performance. • Assistive devices are incorporated as needed.
