The pelvis is an amazing bit of architecture that allows the forces of gravity to be dispersed through the trunk. 

 

A common musculoskeletal complaint is sacroiliac joint pain.  This can be a debilitating injury that can prevent you from moving around freely.  The cause of the injury is sometimes difficult to understand with many people reporting they “just leant over and it went out”.  In these cases an analysis of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex must be undertaken so as to fully understand what mechanisms may have led to the issue.

One major area to be considered is the pelvic floor.  Often over looked the pelvic floor is an extremely important bit of anatomy.  Child birth often disrupts this area leading to pelvic pain.
