The Back Pain Assessment was designed to get a snapshot into some underlying issues which may be causing your back pain. A number of these assessments will also be used to measure your progress moving forward.
No equipment is necessary to complete these assessments, however you will need access to a phone/camera to film each exercise.
The Back Pain Functional Scale
This questionnaire is designed to allow me to assess functional limitations caused by your back pain, in order to judge progress throughout the program and adapt the training to suit.
Overhead Squat Assessment
Single Leg Glute Bridge Assessment
Single Leg Balance Assessment
Rotary Stability Assessment
Hiking Pain Assessment
*This assessment will be repeated a few times in the process, so choose a hike which is easily accessible
** I do not require you to complete this assessment before I put your program together, however, try your best to complete this within 10 days of starting the program.
Sending The Videos
Sending the videos can often be the trickiest part of the process...
Here are three good options for you:
If you have any issues sending the files please let me know.
The Next Steps
Once I receive the videos from you, I will get started on your program. Depending on what day you get me on, it will usually take between 24-48 hours to put together something great.
You will know that the programming is ready when you receive an email from me. (If you do not already have the Training App, you will also receive an email with the download link at this time as well)
So get those videos done, send them over and then get yourself ready for a big 12 weeks!
