Physical therapists utilize joint mobilizations, which are manual (hands-on) interventions, to improve range of motion, restore normal joint mechanics, and improve function. The sacroiliac joints are located at the posterior aspect of the pelvis. Sacroiliac dysfunction can be a significant contributing factor to low back pain, as well as lower extremity pain. Manual physical therapists utilize palpation skills and special testing to help determine which sacroiliac joint mobilization technique is most appropriate to reduce your pain and improve your function.
