The Gluteals and Their Link to Low-Back Pain

by Christine Romani-Ruby, MPT, ATC

Description

Over 95% of adults will experience low-back pain at some time in their life. For many, the length and strength of the gluteal musculature can be a contributing factor and the reason that the back pain persists. In this workshop, we will identify shortness and weakness through Pilates movements and then use those movements to build muscle balance.
