Thinking Outside the Box

Although we have created several techniques designed to maintain a zone of apposition (ZOA), there are instances when these standard techniques may need to be modified or individualized to a specific patient.  This was the case with a patient recently seen by Postural Restoration Certified Physical Therapist, Lori Thomsen.  After several attempts with balloons, wall reaches and left abdominal integration the patient was unable to maintain a ZOA. Lori used Postural Restoration principles to create this new technique to help her patient achieve a ZOA with integrated glute max activity.  This is one of many examples of Postural Restoration therapists thinking outside the box!
