I use the standing one-legged balance test a lot, finding it helps a great deal in the interpretation and prediction of lumbar spine dysfunction. This short article gives a summary of the issues, and I hope to write more on this at some point.

Some thoughts on the tricky idea of cause and effect along with how we can interpret reactions to treatment.
This is an article that I originally posted on my practice website. But it has some ideas that relate to other articles on this site, so I’ve added it here too. Apologies if any of it is a bit simplistic. It wasn’t written for the professional, but more for the educated layperson.
