In today’s weekly meeting between PRI and the Hruska Clinic, we discussed the importance of the PRI Left AIC Stance technique. This activity is the first activity in the standing integration section of our 2nd Edition Non-Manual Techniques CD-Rom. This activity is the beginning to all of our activities that incorporate standing left AF IR. Some patients may have Adduction Lift Test and Abduction Lift Test scores of 3 or better but still be challenged during daily gait. By placing them first in a Left AIC position, it allows you the capability to teach them how to get out of right AF IR and into left AF IR before their right foot leaves the ground. Although stair activity is a great activity to gain left AF IR during midstance, this activity helps teach the patient how to get out of right AF IR during late stance. Consider the PRI Left AIC Stance technique to transition from active right AF IR to left AF IR by transferring 50% of the patients weight through the left leg before moving forward. Many patients appreciate this activity because it gives them a good understanding of what left AF IR really is. To access the complete technique, please click here!
