The reason we are using CARs (controlled articular rotations) and one of its most important benefits, is to assess where there might be a movement deficit at an individual joint.
When a deficit exists, be it flexion, internal or external rotation, or anything else…
…we can assume that the sensory input within the joint isn’t as good as it needs to be…
…and we can also assume that there is some level of compensation occurring somewhere ELSE in the body to make up for the deficit.
The purpose of Pails / Rails (P/R) is to address that deficit.
That is to say, to give you the athlete, improved range of motion at a joint, and… most importantly, control of that range of motion, so that you can actually access it during sport activities.
In this area of the program, I’ll take a few folks through a series of PAILS / RAILS to start to work on the deficits we found. These might not be the ONLY deficits that exist, but we need to begin somewhere!
