- Refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint region that is caused by abnormal motion in the sacroiliac joint
- The dimple joint at the belt line that you can palpate
- Classically found on the right or left side of the spine, at a very local point.
- Complaints of low back pain that radiates into buttock, less frequently to groin.
- SIJ receives its greatest stresses from sitting
- Extension of the spine, or arching backwards, increases the pain
Most Common: Trauma: either Direct or indirect, fall, repeated minor forces on SI joint
- Lower extremity trauma leading to altered gait
- Post injury elsewhere: after hip surgery, knee
- Chiropractic manipulation is usually the most effective treatment.
- Responds well to flexion at waist and knees
- Treatment of soft tissues surrounding the SIJ is also very helpful.
- Switching to non-weight bearing exercise can help heal – swimming or pool running
- Regular chiropractic treatment
- Foam roll Glut muscles, IT Bands as well as hamstrings and quadriceps muscles
- Stretch the gluteus muscles, piriformis and hamstrings
- Knee to chest exercises
- Anti-inflammatory patches
