A mobilization technique used to correct a posteriorly rotated ilium or said another way it is a mobilization technique used to restore anterior rotation to the innominate. This technique is helpful if the patient is unable to tolerate the prone position and the Clinician is unable to perform the Ilium ventral mobilization.
Patient positioned sidelying on the unaffected side.
Clinician maximally flexes the hip and knee of the unaffected side(the bottom leg).
Clinician slightly flexes the affected leg(the top leg).
Clinician bends his knees to get down level with the patient.
Clinician places the ulnar side of his cranial hand on iliac crest and his caudal hand on the ischial tuberosity.
Clinician then takes up the slack and performs a ventral rotation of the ilium.
