The following question was asked during a recent Q&A webinar. The question comes from a Physical Therapist currently taking the Building Better Bones Physical Therapy continuing education course. The student works in a long term care setting. many of her clients are in their eighties and she is challenged finding the proper form to get the clients to do the sit to stand exercise.
Question: How Do I get My Clients into Proper Form for the Sit to Stand Exercise?
The students asks about establishing proper form to get her clients (many of whom are in their eighties) so the they can do the sit to stand exercise.
I discuss how the student can use various techniques to create proper form including using the exercise ball. I emphasize proper technique, balance and eyes on the horizon.
