There are a variety of treatment options available to the physiotherapist which will depend upon the assessment findings but will most likely include mobilisation and/or stabilisation, correction of lumbo-pelvic muscle strength and length imbalances, and core stability exercises, bracing, taping, and RTUI for retraining lumbo-pelvic muscle function.
MOVEMENT AND PALPATION SIGNS
It is often difficult to reproduce pain with movement testing unless specific SIJ tests are performed by a skilled practitioner. The patient is often tender over the SIJ’s and may demonstrate weakness of glut max and glut med with active movement testing.
