Table 1 Exercise prescription according clinical predominant pathology and patient’s functional status. Every test is performed recording isometric dynamometry (except for the GIRD). The rehabilitation staff prescribes an individualized exercises according to the functional status of the patient (column 3), determined by the functional tests performed in the biomechanical laboratory, and according to the clinical predominant pathology (column 2), determined by the medical staff and the functional tests
