Let's explore some basic ways to assess functional strength and stability relative to the lower back, including a couple of simple tests to determine key lower back muscular stability, and several exercises and activities to normalize function.

In the kinetic control model, this would be called rotation control, as you are testing asymmetric movements that involve rotation.
