SI Pain

“Sacroiliac pain comes from unbalanced muscular force between the glutes and the pelvic floor, and the resulting pelvic floor hypertension on the sacrum.” – Katy Bowman, Alignment Matters (page 144)

Sacroiliac pain can be so painful and often debilitating. You can’t walk for any length of time and standing too can be painful. There might be mild to severe pain: aching, burning, tingling along the sciatic nerve, can be in the buttock area and travels down the back of the leg and lower leg to the foot.

The Sacroiliac is a combination of 2 words, 2 locations in the body: the sacrum and the ilia.The pain comes from compression of tissue against the sciatic nerve.

I am reposting my colleague Susan McLaughlin’s blog on how to relieve and Get Rid of Sciatica. It really does work.

Podcast Regarding Male Pelvic Pain

We often hear about pelvic problems for women and it’s not very mainstream to hear about men’s disorders, except for maybe their prostrate.

This podcast comes from colleagues, Susan McLaughlin at Align for Health interviewing Restorative Exercise colleague, David McCoid of  Freedom From Pelvic Pain talking about David’s journey to becoming pelvic-pain FREE!

As I always say, the body is such a smart tool, we just need to learn how to listen to its’ messages.

In David McCoid’s interview he found the use of Restorative Exercise (TM) to alleviate his pelvic pain.

At about the 27 minute mark he says:
“My pelvic floor relaxed when I got my glutes and hams to work properly – PFD (pelvic floor disorder) is not a relaxation problem it’s a proper muscle activation problem, the pelvic floor is tight because the other muscles aren’t doing their job”.
When you get people’s tight hamstrings, glutes, feet working properly than the pelvic floor does too.

It is so wonderful to hear another success story. David works in the UK. Hear the interview below.
