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

Gibbons takes readers on a fascinating journey, teaching us to recognize pain and dysfunctional patterns that arise from the pelvic girdle, and addresses key issues such as:

The walking/gait cycle and its relationship to the pelvic girdle.

• Leg length discrepancy and its relationship to the kinetic chain.

The laws of spinal mechanics.

• Sacroiliac joint screening.

The relationship of the hip joint, gluteal muscles, and lumbar spine to the pelvis.

• Assessment, treatment, and specific core stability exercises for the pelvis and

sacroiliac joint.

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.
