GibbonsUSpb.inddAlthough dysfunctional gluteal muscles often cause pain in the lower backs, shoulders, knees, or ankles of people who exercise regularly, few understand this correlation. Now, physical therapists and athletes alike can begin to learn the effect “glutes” have on other parts of the body, and how to prevent or treat associated pain.

The first book of its kind, The Vital Glutes explores the relationship between the gluteus maximus, postural muscles, and various leg muscles. Written clearly, with hundreds of color images and step-by-step instructions to diagnose and treat dysfunctional glutes, this book is an all-inclusive guide that anyone involved in physical therapy or athletics should add to their collection.
