Human movement is not limited to flexion and extension patterns, in fact the ability to rotate is one of the most significant pattern to understand in the prevention of most injuries. Rotation patterns are very specific to those
joints deigned for rotation. The majority of injuries to the low back, knees and ankle involve a rotational
mechanism. Without adequate mobility of joints designed for rotation the low back, knees and ankle are
subjected to greater rotational stresses leading to significant injury.
The standing rotation pattern identifies segmental movement
of the hips and torso rotation
and upper back are designed for rotational movement patterns more so than the lower back, knees and ankle.
The Standing Rotation Corrective Program will influence improved hip and upper back rotational mobility to
establish the necessity of rotation occuring at the correct joints.
