This topic will focus on restricted range of movement, local & radiating /referred pain, associated musculoskeletal injuries/syndromes, postural syndromes & altered biomechanics of the lumbopelvic & hip region.

Ideal lumbopelvic stability & a strong/stable flexible hip joint provided through correct neuromuscular firing patterns plays a significant role in lumbar stabilisation & maintaining ideal lumbar spinal posture. Ideal lumbar spinal posture is important for the muscle length tension relationship, correct force transfer & absorption of forces through the lumber spine, de-loading compression rates to the facet joints, de-loading compression rates to the intervertebral disc, help maintain a healthy opening at the intervertebral foramen.

Lumbopelvic instability & restricted hip range of motion can lead to a number of lumbopelvic & hip musculoskeletal conditions/injuries such as disk pathologies, facet joint pathologies, compression injuries, stenosis, piriformis impingement of the sciatic nerve neural adhesions, gluteal dysfunction, tendinopathys, impingement syndromes & clicking hip syndrome.

This presentation will focus on postural syndromes, altered biomechanics, assessment & treatment of specific musculoskeletal conditions, & specific corrective stretching & corrective exercises for the lumbopelvic & hip region to aid in ideal stability & range of motion resulting in the reduction of lower back & hip pain & associated musculoskeletal injuries/conditions.
