Adaptive Athletes: Your Spine and Squatting

posted in: Adaptive Athlete, spine, squat, The Lab | 0


Helping adaptive athletes move and live better is a passion of ours at Movement Rx. In this edition of Weekly Mobility, Dr. Theresa Larson speaks about squatting with symmetrical spine and not being afraid of being more anterior. Squatting with the butt back will balance that load on the knees and is not ideal but much healthier for the spine and will diminish the bilateral deficit that can occur with only loading and activating one side of the body more than the other. Using plates under the athletes’s feet will give a tactile cue that is similar to Neuro Developmental Treatment (NDT).
