Hi @ShortielocksWild - welcome to the forums!

We don't like to give out general information without knowing the history and assessment findings first. The more information we have the better an answer we can give. The progressive loading plan might look very different for 2 patients who have similar symptoms depending on what the driver for those symptoms is!

If you can share the patient's history, and what you found during your assessment, then it will be easier for people to give their thoughts!

Hi Shane
the client is an active fit person and adopts a diverse choice of exercise from pilates, handstands, strength and conditioning as well as spinning. She was performing quadrupe bird dogs and when raising the right leg to the rear experienced a nerve type of pain that shot down her front thigh, this happened in November. She lost nearly all strength in her right thigh/leg and had extreme pain in her upper glutes on the RHS around the iliac crest as well as pins and needles. I saw her online and did quite a number of tests including balancing on each leg, squatting, forward flexion and extension, lunging, toe walking and heel walking as well as lateral flexion. Pain was provoked in the lower back when flexing forward, lateral flexing right, extension caused discomfort in the lumbar spine and heel walking for the right foot was not happening - total drop foot. She is having 'weird sensations' down the anterior thigh. If we are looking at this globally and looking to increase load through the right leg I would love any thoughts or advice, thank you.
