Boy, where did February go? It’s already halfway through March and I haven’t made a blog post since mid-January. Where does the time go?

Anyway, time to get caught up on a few things and tops on that list is an excellent forum discussion on sacroiliac joint dysfunction initiated by Karen. Here’s the gist of her question:

… I got in to see the local physiotherapist yesterday (after a 5 month waiting list), and she told me the pain I have in my left buttock isn’t due to sciatica but because I have a strained sacroiliac joint.

What I need to know is does this affect my exercise routine here? Are there certain exercises I shouldn’t be doing etc., etc? I’m not doing any other kind of physical exercise at the moment.


Now I have to admit that I don’t have much experience dealing with sacroiliac joint dysfunction. I know it exists and I know the symptoms can mimic sciatica, but beyond that, I personally haven’t had to deal with it.

Fortunately, Bill P. has kindly stepped-up to fill the gap. He has suggested a novel new exercise (new to me, anyway) that Karen is currently trying out that you might wish to try as well. (Even if you don’t have SIJD.)

If you have questions about sacroiliac joint problems … or any additional tips you wish to share with the group … come join in the conversation here: Sacroiliac Strain

And, if Bill’s exercise helps you, be sure to let us know.

Always willing to learn more,
