The pelvic girdle forms the connection and is also responsible for the transfer of load between the lumbar spine and the lower extremities. The sacroiliac joint is the largest axial joint in the body and an integral part of the pelvic girdle. Research has shown there is very little movement of the sacrum. In this course, the biomechanics and neuromuscular dynamics of the pelvic girdle will be considered. It is of utmost importance for physiotherapists to have a thorough understanding of this area in order to effectively address pelvic girdle dysfunction in their patients.
