The 4th edition of the Pelvic Girdle is a combination hard copy and online (Chapter 1 Historical and contemporary perspectives on the pelvic girdle written by Dr. Andry Vleeming, and 240 videos and 9 case reports) book.  Recently, I have been told that Amazon is selling copies that DO NOT have a passcode to access the critical online portion of this book.  For this reason, I suggest you purchase the book directly from Elsevier and be sure that the front cover has information about and how you access the online portion of the book.

If you have lost access to the online videos, it may be because your link has expired.  Contact Elsevier’s technical department for assistance at

A book every physiotherapist must have!

The Pelvic Girdle continues to provide the busy clinician with the latest evidence and clinical tools/knowledge to immediately impact and enhance daily practice for the management of lumbopelvic-hip pain and disability. This fourth edition has changed fundamentally in presentation and content to provide the clinician with the evidence and clinical tools for effective practice.

The model presented in this edition -The Integrated Systems Model and the Clinical Puzzle (Lee D & Lee L-J 2007 – 2013, Lee D 2013 – current), facilitates effective clinical reasoning, hypothesis development and prescriptive treatment. It is highly unlikely that there will ever be enough research evidence to meet the needs of a clinician who is faced with patients presenting with a wide and variable range of single and multiple impairments every day. Clinical expertise (knowing how to do the right thing at the right time) comes from disciplined, reflective practice and it is hoped that this text will help more clinicians become expert in this field.

  • Presents an evidence-based approach to the examination, diagnosis and treatment of the lumbopelvic region
  • Demonstrates how clinicians can translate knowledge derived from scientific research into clinical practice and also use knowledge gained from clinical practice to evaluate the relevance of the scientific research
  • Highly illustrated descriptions of tests and techniques for practice
