Managing the Spino-Pelvic-Hip Complex

An integrated approach

Find out when this publication becomes available to order

We will use this data to notify you when this publication is available, and for no other purpose.

Managing the Spino-Pelvic-Hip Complex is a book based on the author’s extensive personal clinical experience over more than twenty years of assessing and treating athletes at all levels. Fifteen of those years have been spent working in the field of high-performance sport. That experience has informed his clinical reasoning and treatment philosophies which are also based upon lessons learnt from challenging the science through a Doctor of Philosophy degree.

The book encompasses a complete management strategy for manual practitioners to use when dealing with ongoing issues pertaining to the spino-pelvic-hip complex. It presents a strategy which aims to simplify functional, biomechanical and bio-psychosocial analysis models that can be used as diagnostic tools to highlight kinetic chain and/or specific segmental restrictions in the spino-pelvic-hip complex. The author gives a rationale for the application of the treatment specific to the needs of the athlete, using the appropriate manual techniques to the lumbar spine, pelvis and hip joint.  The treatments are also complemented by strategies for active lifestyle management, incorporating facilitation techniques and movement control exercises.

Managing the Spino-Pelvic-Hip Complex complements the courses that the author has developed and delivers. It is intended that the book will become an extension to these courses, enabling students’ learning to continue long after the completion of any particular course. However, the book can be also used as a stand-alone educational tool and will be helpful for any therapist working within the sporting environment.
