The Vital Glutes
In The Vital Glutes author and respected bodywork specialist John
Gibbons looks at one of the most neglected areas of the body: the
gluteal muscles. He takes readers on a fascinating journey of
enlightenment, teaching us to recognize pain and dysfunctional
patterns that arise from the gluteal muscles.
Gibbons addresses such questions as:
• Why do the gluteals potentially cause pain and dysfunction in
distant sites of the body?
• How does the gait pattern contribute to pain and dysfunction?
• How can the application of gluteal-specific Muscle Energy
Techniques aid full-body well-being?
In addition, he provides step-by-step techniques to identify and
correct a number of impaired patterns as well as functional
gluteal exercises that promote recovery.
