This session begins with the importance of pre-functional co-contraction muscle re-education. Questions that will be addressed include: Does true closed kinetic chain exercise really exist, or is it just a clinical term? Why is the role of the hamstring and hip abductor strengthening the basic core for lower-extremity rehabilitation?
Application of short-arc motion exercises for both the upper and lower extremities will be reconsidered. The presentation of these concerns should lead us to this conclusion: clinicians should to put the word “therapeutic” back into exercise.

Explain the Importance of Co-contraction Muscle Recruitment as a Pre-functional Exercise
Three Components of Function: Mobility, Recruitment, and Stabilization
- Define clinical meaning of co-activation
- Early application of pre-functional recruitment
Review Current Research States Why Hip and Hamstrings Strengthening is the True Core of Lower Extremity Stabilization
- Techniques in open kinetic chain co-contraction
- True core exercises for the lower extremity
- Scapular muscle activation ratios
- Proprioception: the key to stabilization
Discuss Why the Word “Therapeutic” Should be Reconsidered for the Lower and Upper Kinetic Chains
- Protective exercise concepts for the upper extremity
- Application of short-arc exercises for the knee and shoulder
- EMG evidence of positional recruitment
- Incorporating evidence of the difference between scapular activation vs glenohumeral muscle activity
Terry Trundle, ATC, LAT, PTA, has over 38 years of experience in clinical practice and offers educational programs on functional rehabilitation focusing on the upper and lower kinetic chain. He practices in the Atlanta area where he is the Owner and Director of the Athletic Rehab Institute and Sports Medicine. In addition, he serves as a rehab consultant for Benchmark Physical Therapy and as Chair of the Advisory Board for the annual Rehab Summit.
Mr. Trundle’s research has been featured in numerous journals and publications, and he has received awards and recognitions by the American Physical Therapy Association and Medical College of Georgia as a leader in the field. Most recently, he authored a chapter on orthopedic management of the shoulder in Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant. He is the co-producer of a four-part video series that includes exercises on the knee and shoulder and passive micro-mobility of the upper and lower kinetic chains.
