Self-Correction for SI Joint Dysfunction (Technique)
Looking for a self-correction technique for SI joint dysfunction? You’re not alone! Sacro-Iliac Joint (SIJ) pain can be tricky to treat at times, and it’s often overlooked by doctors and physical therapists alike.
This is because changes in the alignment of the SI joints won’t typically show up on imaging, such as x-rays or MRIs.
Instead, we use different techniques to diagnose SIJ pain, such as your pelvic landmarks and leg lengths.
When this information is combined with your physical exam, we can usually narrow down the alignment of the SI joints, and from there we can figure out how to get you back in good alignment and out of pain.
And while this is difficult to do on your own at home, I wanted to share an effective, self-correction technique for the most common type of SI joint dysfunction we see, which is an anterior rotation.
In the video, I’ll explain how to assess your pelvic alignment, and then I’ll go into the technique.
