Functional and Structural Anatomy of the Hips and Pelvis

  • Lane Community College Downtown Campus (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This class, for movement and massage therapists, will focus on understanding the functional anatomy of the muscles and joints of the hips and pelvis. We will learn specific techniques to resolve issues in the low back and hips. We will also explore the role of the pelvis and low back in gait and support of the upper body.

Topics will include:

  • The hip joint as the point of balance for the upper body.

  • The balance of muscles influencing the position and balance of the pelvis on the hip joint.

  • The functional dynamics of the sacroiliac joint and the bones of the pelvis.

  • The role of the sacroiliac joint in low back and hip pain.

  • The influence of the abdominal muscles on the pelvis and sacroiliac joint.

  • The indicators of pelvic torsion and understanding its role in scoliosis.

  • Google Calendar ICS

This class, for movement and massage therapists, will focus on understanding the detailed functional anatomy of the muscles and joints of the legs and feet. Students will learn specific techniques to resolve common issues in the knees, legs and feet. We will also explore the dynamics of the legs and feet in locomotion and support for the whole body.

Topics will include:

  • The ankle joint as a point of balance for the whole body.

  • The subtalar joint and its importance in a fully functioning foot.

  • The relationship of the tibia and fibula as mediated by the interosseous membrane.

  • The role of the muscles of the lower leg in healthy arches.

  • The role of the retinaculum as sensory organs.

  • The knee’s role in mediating the relationship of the hip and ankle in standing and walking.

  • The screw home mechanism of the knee and its role in gait.
