1.ASK S.P TO BEND FORWARD AND BACKWARD WHILE SITTING ON TABLE ,ASK HIM IF HE GETS ANY PAIN
2.ASK HIM TO BEND SIDE TO SIDE
3.ASK HIM TO TWIST ON EITHER SIDES
4.ASK HIM TO GET UP AND BEND FORWARD IN ORDER TO TOUCH HIS TOES..OBSERVE IF HE HAS ANY RESTRICTION OR PAIN
I saw this at cse video,takes lot of time
