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 recognise 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.
