Sacroiliac Pain

Sacroiliac Therapy Bay AreaTreatment of the sacroiliac region is complicated by lack of agreement on whether the sacroiliac joint moves and whether it is a source of pain. Most physical therapists believe that it can move and is a potential source of pain.

Treatment commonly focuses on realigning the sacroiliac joints. When malalignment is the problem, realignment can be the solution. Often times, however, malignment of the sacroiliac joint is not the primary problem but rather the symptom of another problem.

For instance, sacroiliac malalignment may be the result of hip dysfunction or back dysfunction (dysfunction can mean muscle imbalance, joint restriction or excessive joint motion). Correcting muscle imbalances around the lumbar spine, pelvis and hips often corrects sacroiliac malalignment and reduces pain.
"Having worked in front of a computer and battled low back and sciatic pain for over 15 years, I've had limited success with various forms of chiropractic and physical therapy. Amy's regimen of exercise emphasizing muscle balance and good posture have been the only form of treatment to significantly and consistently reduce my pain. I am again able to enjoy activities such as running, mountain biking and telemark skiing."
