My goal is to give you all the knowledge and insight I gained on my own journey with SI joint issues.
I know that many of you have struggled to find a physical therapist who can help you. I went through this process myself— it took me nine attempts at physical therapy, back in the day.
I do think that finding the right physical therapist to show you how to correct your SI joint alignment is one of the first steps. Once that part’s in place, all of the other things you do — strengthening, stretching, etc. — are building on top of a stable foundation.
That’s why I’ve made it my mission to help you understand the goals of successful treatment. After all, you need to know what to look for, in order to find it!
How to find a good physical therapist:
SI joint adjustments by a physical therapist:
- Why correcting your alignment can be the missing piece of the puzzle
- When a Physical Therapist performs an SI joint adjustment, you should feel an improvement right away.
- Why a PT should always be clear about what they’re adjusting, and why
Stabilizing the SI joint ligaments:
- Ligaments of the SI joint
- Ways to stabilize your ligaments: strengthening, SI joint belts, and belting techniques (these are some things a physical therapist might show you).
Cool examples of physical therapy for the SI joint:
- Evidence-Based Examination and Treatment of the Pelvis with Dr. Alexis Wright (a fascinating-looking continuing education course for PT’s who want to know more about the SI joint).
