The step down with a sustained lunge is designed to work on the pelvic stability following a dynamic movement. Using a mirror for this exercise provides great feedback in regards to lower limb and pelvic position which may aid independent completion.
- Stand on the step with both feet
- Step down with one leg, landing in a lunge position with the knee stacked above the ankle and the leg remaining on the step bent also to 90 degrees
- Immediately continue forward with another step while staying low to the ground
- Repeat as per Physiotherapist recommendations
Make sure this exercise is done with a proper step surface at an appropriate height prescribed by your physiotherapist. It should be performed carefully at home using a rail for support if needed.
