Why Do the Lumbar Slump Test?

PTs may learn and go through the motions of a lumbar slump test. But do we understand why? In the video below, NAIOMT Faculty member Stacy Soappman discusses its significance.

Let us know if you have questions, and if you’re looking to expand your clinical reasoning and manual therapy skills, join us for one of these upcoming Lumbopelvic Spine I and II courses, which can be taken in any order. And if you are or know a 2nd or 3rd year PT student, these courses are offered at half off the registration fee. 🙂

    1. Fair point Jasmine! 🙂 The content is really in the videos that are embedded and we just try to remind of courses coming up that are relevant to those videos. But we will definitely work on providing a better balance!
