If you’re a pregnant lady, you may also be recommended to use a sacroiliac support belt, we are not necessarily the biggest fans of support belts, as they do put a lot of pressure on the lower levels of your spine. In saving one area, you effectively challenge another – which can lead to other problems in the lower back section – but they can sometimes be helpful to patients. Getting some good quality treatment to calm the area down a bit during pregnancy, because ultimately it will only be a temporary issue if you’re talking about true sacroiliac dysfunction. If you’re not a pregnant lady and you’ve been diagnosed with a sacroiliac joint dysfunction, we would leave that diagnosis as a last resort. Our first port of call would be to assess the lumbar spine, and the hips to make sure they’re functioning as well as they can do because that’s likely where the joint is being stressed and what is the actual underlying problem. You’re going to have much more success in resolving the issue if you look to those areas and addressing any issues there, than attempting to find someone who can treat a sacroiliac diagnosis.
By treating either the lower back or identifying a leg length issue, this will allow you to have a more balanced structure, the muscle tension that can occur around the hips an be treated to improve mobility, and the joints will not have to work extra hard. If you just try to treat the sacroiliac joint you’re going to be out of tools, it’s possible to reduce inflammation but you need to work on the body elsewhere to determine the cause of the problem to actually have an effective treatment result overall.
