Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Cambridge Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction Clinic

We have cambridge sacroiliac joint dysfunction clinics located in Central Cambridge and Waterbeach. Our osteopath uses osteopathy and prescriptive exercise to treat and manage sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Treatment is usually conservative and uninvasive and delivered in the least painful way possible.

The aim of treatment is to restore the symmetry between both sides of the pelvis, so that both sacroliac joints move together in a symmetrical and pain free manner. This will involve treating the muscles of the low back and pelvis but also direct treatment to pelvis and sacrum with manual therapy techniques.

What is Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction / Sacroiliac joint Capsular Strain?

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction generally refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint region that is caused by abnormal motion in the sacroiliac joint, either too much motion or too little motion. It typically results in inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, and can be debilitating.

What causes a Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction?

Hypermobility – Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is sometimes referred to as “sacroiliac joint instability” or “sacroiliac joint insufficiency” due to the lack of support the once strong and taut ligaments can no longer sustain. When the joint is hypermobile or loose, it is classified as an extra-articular dysfunction because abnormal joint movement and alignment is a consequence of weakened, injured, or sprained ligaments, while the joint itself is structurally normal and healthy.

Hypomobility – Pathological hypomobility (too little movement) of the sacroiliac joint is an intra-articular disorder in which the joint locks due to wearing down with age or degenerative joint disease. Hypomobility of this kind can also occur with an inflammatory disease such as ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, or an infection

How Can We Help?

If the pain has a musculoskeletal origin or cause, then we can provide manual therapy treatment to help reduce the pain severity and improve joint mobility.
