Pelvic Precision

In recent months, Dr. John has written several articles detailing low pack health and performance.  Read them if you haven’t done so

Low Back Instability in Swimmers

We’ll start with an analogy:
Rib cage -> Shoulders and thoracic spine
Pelvis -> Hips and lumbar spine.

The rib cage and pelvis are critical parts but often overlooked compared to their neighboring joint systems. (Forgotten Rib Cage) As with the rib cage, quantifying the pelvis is difficult without specialized equipment.  

When the pelvis does get attention, there’s still no consensus on its optimal function.  Should we treat it as its own joint system or as an extension of the low back or the hips?  Alternatively, are the hips and lumbar spine extensions of the pelvis?  We might also consider the rib cage and pelvis as transitional joint systems.
