Managing the Spino-Pelvic-Hip Complex is based on the author’s extensive clinical experience in the assessment and treatment of athletes at all levels. He has worked in the field of high performance sport for almost 20 years. This experience has informed his clinical reasoning and treatment philosophies, which are also based on the knowledge gained from engaging with science as part of his PhD.

The book contains a complete management strategy for manual practitioners to use when treating problems related to the spine-pelvis-hip complex. It presents a strategy aimed at simplifying functional, biomechanical and bio-psycho-social analysis models that can be used as diagnostic tools to highlight kinetic chains and/or specific segmental limitations in the spine-pelvis-hip complex. The author provides a rationale for the use of treatment specific to the needs of the athlete using the appropriate manual techniques on the lumbar spine, pelvis and hip joint. Treatments are also complemented by active lifestyle management strategies that include activation techniques and movement control exercises.

Managing the Spino-Pelvic-Hip Complex complements the courses developed and delivered by the author. It can also be used as a stand-alone teaching tool and is useful for any therapist working in the sports environment.
