The sacroiliac joint lies next to the bottom of the spine – below the lumbar spine and above the tailbone. It represents the points where two areas that are subject to pressure and strain come together – your sacrum and pelvis Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint, or SI joint, is thought to cause low back pain.
The joint is small and very strong, reinforced by ligaments that surround it. Although referred to as a joint, it does not have much motion, but transmits all the forces of the upper body to the pelvis (hips) and legs, acting as a shock-absorbing structure. Stretched ligaments and muscles, and pressure on your spinal nerve can cause pain in this region.
During our workshop, each participant will be assessed by Dr. Amber Hartman with Saylor Physical Therapy to determine if your SI joint may be the cause of your back issues. Then you will learn self alignment techniques and pelvic stabilization exercises to help alleviate pain in this area.
