The SI Joint is small and very strong, reinforced by strong ligaments that surround it, and does not have much motion. It functions to transmit forces from the upper body to the pelvis (hips) and legs and to act as a shock-absorbing structure.
In this video, we will be focusing on exercises that strengthen the muscles around this joint that externally rotate, flex, extend, adduct, and abduct the hips. By performing this workout, we can combat symptoms of lower back and hip pain.
Although trauma, aging, and spinal changes contribute, muscle weakness is a huge part of SI joint pain. Muscle imbalances are largely responsible for pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, pelvis/buttock pain, hip/groin pain, feeling of leg instability (buckling, giving way), disturbed sleep patterns, disturbed sitting patterns (unable to sit for long periods, sitting on one side), and pain going from sitting to standing.
We will use a thigh band and sponge ball in supine, sidelying, prone, kneeling, and standing exercises. Modifications will be given throughout
