0. STEP 0: Find, Touch & Record the "Issue of the Session".
Grade Find an "Issue for the Session·. either sitting or with motion. Touch It! Record how you
touched It and give the l55ue a Percentage. (0-100). 100 being the Worst.
1. STEP 1: TestAll 5 Exercises Arst, Comparing The Left To The Right
Grade Test All 5 Exercfses First- Quickly ( <3 Min.), By Memory, Correctly and Into The
End-Ra'*.
~rd the 1'ad 5lde (Right or Left) & percent(%) of difference between the two sides
Remember: tt Is notjust about finding pain. It_ls also about tightness. weakness,
heaviness. stlffne55, etc.
2. STEP 2: Rank the Test in Order From the Greatest to Least Amount of
Grade Difference.
1 =The most difference between right a.nd left side. 5 =The least difference)
R=ord the Rank on the FA6 5 form.
3. STEP 3: Exercise"~ Side Until Sad Side Is Axed
Grade Start with the exercise with the greatest difference from the tests (#1 Rank).
RETEST this ExerciH
ExerciEHJ the Good Side Only Until the 5ad Side is Fixed, plateaus, the good side
Is fatigued or until the patient no longer wante to continue. (But. know that if the
Bad Side movement Is not fully fixed to 0 , you are leaving a problem In the system
that will need to be addressed ~In at a later time in order to have the issue fully
resolved.)
R=ord the 5ad elde percentage~) after each set Is performed.
. .
Do Not Stop This Exercise Too Early- Use enough end range motion, and/or force,
with the exercise to make a change. (Greater tightness needs greater End-Range
or greater force)

~ "Issue of the Session" is fixed.

If the "lssua• is Fixed - You m Dona For This 5dssfon. If desired, any remaining
exerc15e5 that are not balanced, left versus right side, can be performed. The more
balanced the body, the longer the l55ue stays gone.
