When training your pre/postnatal clients in quadruped position (hands and knees/all fours), do you sometimes struggle getting them to keep their pelvis stable?
When you prompt them to ‘lift their right leg behind them’, do you find their pelvis automatically shifts over to the left to compensate?
Do you have to get ‘hands-on’ quite frequently to ‘hold’ their pelvis in place?
Often notice how their pelvis shifts to the right or the left, and no matter how many times you ‘coach’ and ‘cue’ them to NOT do this, it still happens?
I have a great little strategy to help you to get your clients to take ownership of their own pelvis! Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
Today, I’m sharing with you what I consider to be the 3 Top Causes of Back Pain for our pregnant and postnatal clients.
The tips I’m listing here aren’t just for pregnant women by the way, but for anyone – male or female, old or young, fit or unfit etc.
Feel free to share this information around amongst your work colleagues, friends, neighbours and respective others.
It could really help someone close to you and set off a few light bulbs in the process.
A lot of people suffer with back pain, but aren’t aware of what it is that’s often the culprit.
Here are my top tips when dealing with clients that present with this condition in your classes:
ONE-SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL – PGP is a very individual . Some clients will be fine on their hands and knees, lifting a knee, others will feel pain in their pubic area instantly. Some clients will get discomfort in their SIJ (sacro-illiac joint) in side-lying, others don’t.
