The involvement of the sacroiliac joint in the broader spectrum of low back and pelvic pain has long been controversial. This course examines the role of this joint in that spectrum and the pathomechanics that are involved. The SI joint derives its stability from both its anatomical features and dynamic muscle activity. The contribution of each varies throughout the cycle of lumbopelvic motion during the gait cycle.
This course looks at these two components of stability, their interrelationship during gait and other tasks, and the imbalances that may be associated with pain generation.
