Dr. Plaugher DC incorporates one leg standing balance exercises (OLSBE) as a primary rehabilitative strategy.
OLSBE can be used to reduce signs of frailty in older adults through fall prevention.
It is also used to the strengthen the core of the spinal column and for reducing habituated positions such as standing on one leg with more weight than the other side.
OLSBE is used to reduce postural deformities such as forward head posture and scoliosis.
Another aspect of OLSBE is it appears to affect pain avoidance and fear avoidance behaviors.
