  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI): Management Techniques Using Postural Restoration: Part 2 [Article]

    Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is recognised as an anatomical discrepancy between the proximal femur and the acetabulum, which may increase the risk of intra-articular hip pathology, including labral tears and contribute to the development of groin pain. In the first article in this series I explained the biomechanics of lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction as it relates to femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and as understood by the Postural Restoration Institute. In this second article I 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.

  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI): Management Techniques Using Postural Restoration: Part 1 [Article]

    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.

    This article seeks to provide answers to the following questions:

    1. How are respiration and the lumbo-pelvic complex linked?
    2. What are the three types of femoroacetabular impingement?
    3. How the biomechanics of lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction relate to femoroacetabular impingement
  • Myofascial techniques for hip mobility

    This article cites evidence linking low back pain and limited hip mobility, and then clearly explains three hands-on techniques for applying this information in clinical practice. The techniques described are safe, simple and clear enough to be employed by practitioners of all modalities and experience levels. Contraindications and cautions, including hip replacement and femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, are discussed.

  • Maximising your gluteus - part 2

    Many athletes and patients attend the clinic every day with pain somewhere in their body. The question the therapist needs to ask is, ‘Can the gluteal muscles be partly or wholly responsible for the pain that the patient is presenting with?’ If the answer is yes, then we need to know why this muscle group, out of all the other muscles we have in the body, might be the key to the problem. This article is split into two parts. Part 1, presented in January’s issue, discussed the functional anatomy of the gluteus maximus and described how to identify if weakness or misfiring of the muscles is responsible for the athletes problems. Part 2, presented here, discusses how to correct the misfiring and to re-educate the firing of the Gmax by looking specifically at the antagonistic muscles that become adaptively shortened. Once this process is understood I will then explain and demonstrate using advanced soft-tissue techniques that I use to help correct the malalignment of the pelvis and lumbar spine through the treatment of the soft tissues.
