Summary "The Pelvic Girdle presents a straightforward and logical approach to the examination, assessment and treatment of the lumbopelvic-hip region and its related disorders. The book follows the 'Integrated Model of Function originally proposed by Dr. Andry Vleeming and Diane Lee. This model is derived from anatomical and biomechanical studies of the pelvis, as well as from clinical experience of treating patients with lumbopelvic pain. It addresses the reasons why the lumbopelvic-hip region is painful and no longer able to sustain and transfer loads, as opposed to models which seek to identify pain-generating structures."
"In this new edition the author has incorporated the key findings of research published over the last 5 years which have relevance for the clinician treating low back and pelvic pain. The clinical content of the book has been entirely rewritten and reorganized as a result. The first four chapters have been updated in the light of this research but Chapters 5-10 are brand new for this edition." "It provides a unique integration of the latest research and related clinical material with guidance on how to apply the research evidence in day-to-day clinical practice. The aim is to help clinicians improve their ability to accurately assess and safety and effectively treat their patients."--BOOK JACKET
