We often provide clients with gluteal exercises for lower back, hip and knee pain but do we really understand the rationale behind them? What does the research indicate and where are the gaps in our knowledge?
• Understand the role of the gluteals in sacroiliac joint stability, lower back pain, falls prevention, osteoarthritis, patellofemoral pain
• Develop an understanding of low tensor fascia latae exercises and use of a step-up box
• Differentiate between low and high activation exercises for the gluteals
• Explore the concepts of hip joint centration, neuromotor control, quadriceps dominance and injury prevention
• Maximise the benefits of gluteal exercises through improved technique
• convey to your clients to the true meaning of their exercises
Exercises are mat based only with step-up boxes, therabands and ankle weights. They are designed for clients to be able to perform in the studio as well as at home
