Book Description:

This step-by-step guide for assessing the pelvis and sacroiliac joint by respected bodywork specialist John Gibbons explores all aspects of this crucial area of the body and how it links within the kinetic chain system. Gibbons–a registered sports osteopath who specializes in the treatment and rehabilitation of sport-related injuries—provides detailed information about how to recognize pain and dysfunctional patterns that arise from the pelvic girdle along with techniques to identify and correct a number of impaired patterns as well as functional exercises that promote recovery. Fully illustrated with 350 color photos, this book will give practitioners, students, and anyone who wants to understand pelvic pain and what they can do about it a wealth of practical information.

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, and lumbar spine to the pelvis; and sacroiliac joint screening. He discusses role of the Glutes, Psoas, Rectus femoris and other muscles and what happens to the position of the pelvis if these soft tissues become shortened. Detailed exercises and techniques are carefully illustrated with photographs that explain each movement, and an appendix for quick reference adds to the usefulness of the text.
