The questions are flying in now
Fast bowling takes its’ toll on people, it really is such an unnatural and tough thing on the body
Adam had this question for us
I’ve noticed that after the season, my pelvis is hiked up on my front foot side and is very tight!
Can this be fixed?
An unstable and out of position pelvis is a hallmark of dysfunction – everything begins and ends here.
The pelvis is the centre of the body – if we have positional problems here then we will see problems above and below, KNEE OR LOWER BACK PAIN!!!
One of the first visual assessments we do is of the pelvis, and it can tell us a lot, we can pretty much see a few of the things which are going on in the body by the state of it
Think about the force that goes through that leg every time you bowl
Between 4-8 times your bodyweight every single ball.
Multiply that by every ball over the season and you get a crazy figure of load that you are trying to cope with
Then add in the gym work – it still amazes me the amount of symmetrical loading S & C’s do, Squat & Deadlift on an uneven pelvis and watch over time what happens.
First thing is to assess the Pelvis then begin correcting the position.
Then we try and re set the patterns around it, getting the trunk working as it should as well as the hips. At the end of the season if the training has been off and the load high then we can see the trunk gain too much mobility and the hip too much stability
We get in and change that around
So when you combine smart soft tissue work along with corrective exercise, the pelvis gets back to where it should
And the hammy and lower back thank you for it
