Your client, Sarah, was cleared to exercise 6 weeks ago. She shows up to a workout with you today and you notice that she’s limping.
She mentions that she twisted her knee playing soccer over the weekend but was hoping your corrective exercises could help her. You should:
- HAVE HER PERFORM A MONSTER WALK WITH A BAND AND SEE IF IT REDUCES HER KNEE PAIN
- DECREASE HER TRAINING LOADS BY 50%
- AVOID ANY LEG EXERCISES THAT DAY AND TELL HER TO SEE A PHYSICAL THERAPIST IN THE FUTURE
- EXPLAIN THAT SHE NEEDS TO GET CLEARED BY A PHYSICAL THERAPIST BEFORE DOING ANY EXERCISES WITH YOU
