This lecture/demo, developed by the Merrithew™ team, explores the anatomy and biomechanics involved in the normal, healthy functioning of the lumbo-pelvic region, some of the dysfunctions that can occur and Mat-based exercise progressions to restore optimal function. First, the available movements and ideal functioning of the lumbo-pelvic region are explored, considering the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip and surrounding musculature. Next, common abnormal or dysfunctional movement patterns and postures are addressed. Finally, Matwork exercises incorporating a variety of small props and progressions to rebuild normal muscle action and movement patterning are outlined.
