The coordinated movement of the lumbo–pelvic–hip complex during running: a literature review Academic Article uri icon


  • The purpose of this review article is to summarise the literature to date regarding the movement of the lumbar spine, pelvis and hips during running gait. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional studies are analysed to illustrate the apparent coordination in the angular kinematics of each of these segments during running. Knowledge of this coordination is essential in order to facilitate the successful rehabilitation of running injuries to the back, pelvis, hip and thigh.
