Sacroiliac Joint – Si Joint and Back Pain – Si Joint and Pelvic Tilt
Unlocking the History of Low Back Pain
What is the sacroiliac joint, how does it contribute to low back pain, and why? These questions and more are answered in this lecture on the sacroiliac joint, presented by Steve Middleton.
“The primary cause of SI joint dysfunction, excluding the upslips, is hypomobility of the hips. As one joint becomes stiffer, another joint becomes looser—hypermobile—to compensate in an attempt to maintain normal movement, although the movement pattern becomes abnormal.” ~Steve Middleton
