Abstract:The purpose of this article is to provide basic information about the S.T.E.P. approach to exercise. The S.T.E.P. approach is based on current research in neurophysiology, histology and exercise physiology. The S.T.E.P. method is an individually adapted approach that aims to reduce symptoms and improve functional tissue tolerance. Specific examples are given on how to dose an exercise program and how to optimally facilitate muscle fiber recruitment. S.T.E.P. represents an active alternative to traditional, passive schools of thought in modern manual therapy.
