What types of tests do YOU use to assess lumbopelvic control? We have talked about the multifidus lift test before; here is another
“The clinical test of thoracolumbar dissociation was devised into assess a patient’s ability to perform anterior/posterior pelvic tilt in sitting while attempting to maintain a constant position of the thoracolumbar junction.
The results demonstrate that the clinical test of thoracolumbar dissociation has acceptable inter-rater reliability when used by trained physiotherapists. This test described here is the first to assess the ability to dissociate movement of the lumbopelvic region from that of the thoracolumbar region.”
