Product Description

In Functional Anatomy of the Pelvis and the Sacroiliac Joint author and respected bodywork specialist John Gibbons looks at one of the most important areas of the body: the pelvis and the sacroiliac joint. He takes readers on a fascinating journey of enlightenment, teaching us to recognize pain and dysfunctional patterns that arise from the pelvic girdle.

Gibbons addresses key issues such as:

  • The walking/gait cycle and its relationship to the pelvis
  • Leg length discrepancy and its relationship to the kinetic chain and the pelvis
  • The laws of spinal mechanics
  • The relationship of the hip joint, gluteal muscles, lumbar spine to the pelvis
  • Sacroiliac joint screening

In addition, he provides step-by-step techniques to identify and correct a number of impaired patterns as well as functional exercises for the pelvis that promote recovery.
