Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction is a term given to the abnormal movement of the sacroiliac joints. It involves either hyper mobility (decreased movement) or hypo mobility (increased movement) of the joints. It can also involve inflammation of the joints, which is referred to as sacroiliitis.
These ladies are the pain solving experts. I have had the pleasure of their expertise for my various pain issues. They have even convinced me to try Pilates as a method of pain relief (and it works). Professional and fun loving place to be.

What is the cause?
This condition is caused by anything that causes the ligaments surrounding the sacroiliac joint to become either too loose (hypermobile) or too tight (hypomobile). Some conditions that can cause this are:
- Damage to the ligaments
- Issues with the nearby joints
Signs & Symptoms
- Back Pain
- Buttock Pain
- Radiating pain
- Increased pain when standing on one leg
What can we do about it?
The first thing that needs to be done when suffering sacroiliac joint dysfunction is for the physiotherapist to do a thorough assessment to determine what is causing the dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint.
Once the cause is determined the Physiotherapist at Elite Spinal Physiotherapy can perform the appropriate treatment. This will generally involve improving spinal alignment, soft tissue therapy and a tailored exercise program.
