Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint region that is caused by abnormal motion in the joint, either too much or too little. It typically leads to inflammation of the joint, pain and can be debilitating. Symptoms include low back pain usually one sided, hip or groin pain.
Two common causes of SIJ dysfunction are pregnancy and degenerative changes.
Can Billericay Physiotherapy help?
YES! physiotherapy can help by allowing you to understand the causes of your SIJ pain and to plan a rehabilitation programme to help address the possible causes and symptoms. A specific and progressive home exercise programme to improve flexibility and strength is essential to manage your pain. Hands on physiotherapy may also be used including mobilisations, neural stretches, soft tissue mobilisations, manipulations, acupuncture and fitting of corsets during pregnancy. Manual therapy helps to increase range of movement, reduce pain and return to normal function.
