Sacroiliac Pain - musculoskeletal physiotherapeutic clinical reasoning using imaging and stability testing exercises
The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is designed to transfer the load from along muscle energy straps of the limbs into the torso. The torso, hip and pelvis are constructed into a series of slings (front, back, side, inside and spiral) which supports those structures receiving the load. Consider a person lying in a hammock and you have an analogy, for skeletal support, by the soft tissue structures of the body. Andre Vleeming described these 'slings' in the 1990's and body work practitioners such as Ida Rolf (and Thomas Meiers) referred to myofascial trains in the 1970's. As such, a series of exercises can be used to assess and treat stability across the SIJ.
People interested in the 'energy straps' across the lower limb should look at 'inverse dynamics' elsewhere on this site.
