Summary The human pelvis, in particular movement at the pelvic joints, has recently become the focus of a number of major research programmes. The outcomes of this research are giving rise to a new set of questions with important clinical implications. These questions include: Is the consideration of the lumbar spine and pelvis as separate entities an obstacle to the effective treatment of back pain? What are the similarities between lumbopelvic pain and peripartum pain? Does the latest anatomical and biomechanical research provide the missing links? How is the stability of the pelvis maintained? What effect does lumbar spine surgery have on pelvic stability? What is the relevance of the latest kinematic findings to the prevention and treatment of low back pain? Movement, Stability and Low Back Pain brings together the latest findings which help to provide the answers to these questions. Back pain is one of the most common clinical problems in modern society. Its safe and effective management concerns many professional groups from gynaecologists and midwives to physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and orthopaedic surgeons
