TIP9: The Pelvis 101-2

Today, let’s talk about the structure of the pelvis.

I’m not going into much detail because if you’re interested, you can always ask Mr. google and hit a million websites that will describe it in the depth of your dreams.

Here, we only discuss what “I,” think “YOU” should know.

So, the pelvis.


During the early stage of our life (i.e. kids), the different colors parts described in the picture used to be separate bones.

Then, at puberty, the Ilium, Pubis, and Ischium all FUSE together and left with a less complicated structure.

As adults, we are left with a set of Hipbones, a Sacrum, tailbone, and a cartilage (Pubic Symphysis) at the front.

If anything could go wrong in the pelvis, it’s usually related to conjunctions in the front (Pubis Symphysis) or the back (SI Joint).

I’ll tell you why tomorrow.




If you haven’t read the first 3 FOOT series, I recommend reading them first.

Welcome back.
Today, I would like to expand on the “dome” shape concept of the FOOT.
Today’s goal is to be able to imagine the “dome” structure of YOUR FOOT.

The “dome” of your foot should have 3 solid bases.
-the base of your big toe
-the base of your pinky toe
-the heal bone

These Three points are the connective landmarks for the “ARCHES” of the foot

You want all three of these points firmly on the ground when you stand, and when you land.

If you can’t feel any of these three points firmly, your dome can’t and won’t function as an optimal shock absorber.

But think about it, the shock itself doesn’t go away just because your “dome” can’t absorb it.

The good news, our body has so many backup plans, it’s amazing.
The bad news, no other parts of our backups do it better than our feet, and often times the stress accumulates at our favorite backup destination.
What is your favorite destination of stress??



★A “JOINT” is a site where 2 or more bones articulate.

★The “bones” of a joint are “taped” together with ligaments,
★Depending on how much that joint is designed to MOVE, the joint surfaces (where the bones articulate) are usually covered with some degree of cartilage.

★ Muscles that overlap the joints are responsible for moving that joint.   There are at least 2 muscles associated with each joint.

★There are simply too many joints in the body to keep track of all of them.

Most of the joints will remain unrecognized until something goes wrong.
However, the joints we should be taking care of, are those that bear the weight.
Yes, the weight bearing joints.
When we take care of these joints properly, all joints should become happy!


TIP2: The FOOT 1

Why is our FOOT so important?

Maybe because it is the only part of our body designated to interact with this world directly.
It’s an obvious answer, but I’m sure you haven’t given it much of a thought.

The foot itself contains about a quarter of the bones in our whole body.
-50 bones,
-60 joints
-100 muscles, tendons and ligaments
connect to the FOOT
No wonder so many people face a problem or two in their FOOT region.
No wonder many people and companies obsess about proper FOOTwear.

It’s one of those parts of our body that rarely gets any rest unless it alerts you with pain.

So be kind, give it a loving ♡massage or two once in a while.
