In The Vital Glutes & Psoas Masterclass, osteopath, author and respected bodywork specialist John Gibbons looks at two of the most neglected areas of the body: the gluteal & psoas muscles. He will personally take will take you on a fascinating journey of enlightenment, teaching you how to recognise pain and the dysfunctional movement patterns that can arise from dysfunctions found within the gluteal & psoas muscles
John will teach you functional anatomy and the biomechanics of the kinetic chain and the link to the gluteal & psoas muscles and how they relate to pain and dysfunction to distant sites of the body. Once that has been understood, he takes you on a fascinating journey to functionally assess the firing patterns of the gluteus maximus and gluteus medius as well as specific muscle length tests that can alter the position of the pelvis and lumbar spine (with the psoas naturally being one of them.
- Why or how are the glutes potentially causing pain and dysfunction to distant sites of the body?
- How does the gait pattern contribute to pain and dysfunction?
- How can the application of gluteal-psoas-specific Muscle Energy Techniques aid whole-body well-being?
All these questions, plus more, are answered during this course!
