Starting with a review of the anatomy of the hip and knee plus all the muscles that wind around the pelvis, thigh and hip, we move on to examine which muscles are local and global and how to apply this information to movement. From there we consider subjective and objective evaluations of all the compartments of the lower limb. A major focus is two main functions of the lower limb: sit to stand and gait—how to assess these key functions and what to do to improve their execution. We also spend time on functional movement in general and common conditions of the lower limb—pelvis, hip and knee—as well as Sahrmann’s 11 movement impairments of the pelvis and hips. We conclude with a plan of action to restore optimal function and movement.
- Gain a systematic and in-depth understanding of the lower limb
- Learn both methodical and creative ways to approach movement impairments in the pelvis, hip and knee
- Explore a variety of exercises that go beyond the Pilates repertoire, and push the envelope in terms of restoring optimal function and movement
- Major emphasis is placed on hips and how they affect knees
