The human pelvis, in particular movement at the pelvic joints, has recently become the focus of a number of major research programmes. The outcomes of this research are giving rise to a new set of questions with important clinical implications. These questions include: Is the consideration of the lumbar spine and pelvis as separate entities an obstacle to the effective treatment of back pain? What are the similarities between lumbopelvic pain and peripartum pain? Does the latest anatomical and biomechanical
