- female
- pregnancies
- african american ethnicity
- general joint laxity
- sagittally oriented facet joints
- hyperlordosis
- high pelvic incidence 23 year old male
Football player: Lineman
PMH: diagnosed Spondylolysis at L5-S1 level 2 years ago. Step deformity felt upon palpation of spinous process during clinical evaluation.

other signs and symptoms:
- weak and drooping abdominal wall
- paravertebral muscle hypertrophy
- increase lumbar lordosis
- hamstring muscle spasms
- pain during lateral trunk flexion- extension
-pain with ambulating distances shorter than 250 meters. Straight Leg Raise -
pain indicates positive test prone instability test -
when pressure is applied,
no pain indicates positive test. stork standing test -
pain indicates a positive test. 2. Abdominal Curls 4. Prone holds 5. Bird Dog exercises 3. Double knee to chest •flexion: superior slide
•extension: inferior slide •lateral flexion: superior slide of contralateral facet, inferior slide of ipsilateral facet •rotation: Contralateral facet will approximate, ipsilateral facet will separate. •flexion and extension: sagittal plane
•lateral flexion: frontal plane
•rotation: transverse plane Photos reference: http://www.osceskills.com/e-learning/subjects/spine-examination/ 40-50 degrees - flexion 15-20 degrees - extension 20 degrees 5-7 degrees Reference: p. 350 Neuman Question 1 Which muscles should you strengthen first when treating Spondylolisthesis? 1.
