CrossFlowRx: SI Joint Dysfunction Moves with Dr. Monica Saliu. 21 minutes.
According to Dr. Monica Saliu, co-founder and clinical director of Tribeca Physical Therapy, and my personal savior, this condition affects mostly young adults, with more prevalence in women, and increased incidence in postpartum women. SI Joint Dysfunction presents with pain, instability or restriction at the joint that connects the pelvis to the lower back. It can be quite debilitating (as I can attest – I could barely walk when it first happened!) and can result in movement dysfunctions and long-term lower back pain and /or nerve damage, if not treated appropriately.
During the acute phase, Dr. Saliu typically prescribes: rest, anti-inflammatory medication, bracing and therapeutic exercises. Unfortunately, after the pain subsides, the dysfunction can continue if not corrected properly.
If SI Joint Dysfunction is something that you struggle with, the moves in this video can help strengthen and create space in all the right places.
