The first in a three part series explaining the biomechanics of lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction as it relates to femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and as understood by the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI). Restoration of pelvic-femoral alignment and recruitment patterns of specific rotational muscles within the lumbo-pelvic-femoral complex will be discussed along with treatment techniques to recruit, retrain and restore ideal lumbo-pelvic-femoral position. The articles explain how to apply PRI clinical assessment and management skills when treating diagnoses such as FAI. In the second article I go on to propose biomechanical mechanisms and rationale for both CAM and pincer types of FAI. In the third article I propose a method of managing FAI using Postural Restoration Techniques.
