Sacroiliac Joint Pain
Do you have pain on one or both sides of your lower back? Is your lower back stiff? Do you have pain when walking, using stairs or when putting weight on your leg? This program was designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy and will teach you the best exercises for alleviating pain due to irritation of the discs, muscles and joints of the lower back.
The sacroiliac joints are two small synovial joints located on the right and left sides of the low back between the sacrum and the ilium bone of the pelvis. These joints are surrounded by numerous ligaments, which makes them very strong and capable of supporting body weight. Because of their joint shape and the surrounding ligaments, the sacroiliac joints move very little, but are thought to account for a small percentage of back pain cases.
Pain associated with sacroiliac joint irritation is usually located on one side of the low back and may radiate into the buttock or back side of the thigh. Fortunately, rehabilitation programs that address hip and low back mobility and neuromuscular control have been shown to help greatly with this type of pain.
If you believe you may experiencing pain originating from one or both of your sacroiliac joints, this program will help reduce pain and improve overall function.
