The human pelvis has become a focus for a considerable amount of new research, which is relevant to manual therapy practice. In particular, movement within the pelvis is now being recognized and studied in relation to its role in maintaining stability in the vertebral column and subsequent implications for the prevention and treatment of low back pain. This important subject area is covered in depth in this new edition. The contributors represent the breadth of professionals involved in manual therapy, from osteopathy, chiropractic and manual physical therapy, to orthopaedic medicine and surgery, anaesthesia and pain control.
