When treating the geriatric population or someone with acute pain, we modify our testing and treatment all the time. You can take several of the sidelying activities and modify them to aseated position. This is an example of a modified Sidelying Adductor Pull Back. Because of the patients inability to get on and off the floor, the therapist has instructed this activity in a seated position. What’s even more beneficial to this modified seated position is the ability for the patient to isolate just the left adductors by placing her right hand medially to the left knee. With verbal cues for the patient to “press their left knee into their right hand”, they isolate just the left adductors without right adductor involvement. To access the complete handout, click here!
