?Return to running and jumping

? Here are a couple of progressions that I work on with returning to running and jumping. It’s critical to work on fast eccentric motion of the quad as that’s how it’s used during the absorption phase of running and during the propulsion and landing phases of jumping.

?? The first video is just using body weight and progressing from double leg to single leg variations. Adding in the medicine ball makes the task harder. It’s increases the demand on the musculature (by adding weight) and creates a dual task so the patient isn’t “focused” solely on knee position

?? I’ll be posting soon about my criteria for return to run ?‍♀️
