SI Joint Pain Test
In this quick video, Dr. Rowe (St. Joseph, MI chiropractor) shows an SI joint pain test. This may help answer if lower back pain might be coming from the sacroiliac joints.
HERE'S A WAY TO TEST IF PAIN IS COMING FROM THE SI JOINT.⠀
Sacroiliac joint injuries are common, and can occur for many reasons. However, an SI joint injury is also commonly confused for a lumbar or hip problem. This is because they share similar areas and patterns of pain.⠀
So here's an easy 30 second test that's going to help separate the SI joints from the lumbar spine for lower back pain. It's a two-part movement that puts movement into the SI joint, while also opening up and releasing pressure in the lumbar spine.
If there's discomfort in the lower back while doing this, it may be coming from the SI joint. It's extremely important to know what area is causing pain since it will help create a better treatment plan, which means a faster recovery. ⠀
Give it a try, and spread the good word!
