No More Stool Scoots in Rehab

No More Stool Scoots in Rehab

Stool Scoots are popular within the rehab community to isolate and target the hamstrings. A rehab professional might want to do this after an ACL reconstruction (hamstrings help control anterior tibial translation ie an ACL mechanism of injury) or after a hamstring strain (best evidence for hamstring strain prevention is eccentric hamstring strengthening). While the stool scoot exercise does in fact isolate the hamstrings (over the glutes), the stool scoot motion has got to be one of the LEAST FUNCTIONAL movement patterns out there, unless of course you and your coworkers are having chair raises everyday at work ๏ฟฝ (I guess thatโ€™s better than simply sitting all day)
