Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have an unstable sacroiliac joint that gives me pain, which is relieved by adjustment for a few days. My doctor tells me it is not stabilized, but may become that way sometime in the future, but now needs frequent treatments. What should I do? Is there any stretching exercise that will free up the joint? Any other advice?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

In my opinion, I would like you to do glute stabilization exercises as those exercises will help you stabilize your pelvis, and thereby your back and SI joint. Along with those stabilization exercises, some simple hip mobility exercises will help you reduce the load on the lower back.

Simple exercises like bridging clamshell will help to strengthen the gluteus along with stepping up. Stretching for gluteus and piriformis hip iR stretch will help maintain hip mobility.
