Pelvic Locomotor Dysfunction: A Clinical Approach
This practical chiropractic reference discusses a clinical approach to common locomotor disturbances of the pelvic joints, specifically, the sacroiliac, hip, and pubic symphysis joints. Soft tissue and muscular dysfunction are also covered. The book focuses on the more common disorders that most practitioners using manual methods see on a daily basis. Opening chapters review the anatomy and function of the sacroiliac joints. Two chapters address making a clinical assessment, history taking and general considerations. A heavily illustrated examination chapter, plus treatment chapters covering mobilization and manipulation, provide a wealth of practical clinical applications. The soft tissue treatment techniques discussed include myofascial trigger points and length-strength restoration of muscles. A chapter discusses stretching techniques and exercises that can be taught to patients to do at home. An Instructor's Manual is available.
