The BEST Self Adjustment For Lower Back Pain

If you suffer with lower back pain, constantly or intermittently. If the morning is the worst time of day for feeling stiff and bending forwards putting socks on and washing your feet in the shower is difficult, this self adjustment of the sacroiliac joint that you can do simply at home will give you tremendous relief.


What is the sacroiliac joint?

The sacroiliac joint is found at the base of the spine where the sacrum meets the two halves of your pelvis (the ilium).  Normally when there is correct length and tension in the muscles of the core (pelvic floor, transversus abdominus and multifidus) the sacroiliac joint will function well and does not become a problem.  However when we experience altered tone in the muscles mentioned above plus excessive tone of the hamstrings and poor posture, the sacroiliac joint can become dysfunctional.  This is why its important to correctively stretch and strengthen around the pelvis to get full resolution to sacroiliac joint pain.

Lower back pain is said to affect approximately 80% of the world population with 40% going on to experience recurring lower back problems. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction alone may be responsible for up to 35% of lower back pain. At Movement Lifestyle we mostly work with clients that fall into the chronic lower back pain category, more often than the acute and its this group of people that most often suffer with instability in the core and spinal column.

Using the simple but highly affective mobilisation technique I explain in the video multiple times during the day will help to realign the sacrum between the two pelvic bones and release and tissues that may have become inflamed and irritated. Following this mobilisation with core conditioning exercises to rebalance and retune the core muscles would be ideal.
