  1. YTWL-Standing:  Based on Blackburn’s rotator cuff research, this standing version requires fewer props at home using a piece Theraband. The prone version is already in the library at MyRehab.
  2. Quadruped Rock Back-Gym Ball:  This is a nice correction for loss of lumbar lordosis at the bottom of squatting exercises. Sometimes referred to as “butt winking”, this rounding of the lumbar spine under load produces the injury vector for lumbar disc herniation.
  3. Pallof Presses:  Named after John Pallof, PT, these core stabilization exercises are a great intervention for rotary instability. Standing versions on 2 legs are shown as well as single leg versions. I’ve had a lot of success using the single leg version in runners prone to overpronation and patellofemoral syndrome.
