Sacroiliac Joint Pain: How To Stop Sciatica and Low Back Pain
The pelvis consists of 3 major bones, the Sacrum in the middle which is supported by two flat bones the inominates or ileum. The joints are called the sacroiliac joints. These have very strong fibrous ligaments and cartilages along with the joint capsule.

sacroiliac dysfunction is easily treated with chiropractic manipulation. When the eldest becomes distorted in the sacroiliac joint is on a function perhaps the only treatment that will resolve or correct the issue is a chiropractic manipulation. Methods used vary and all are effective.

This pretzel type of position, it is not painful and usually give immediate relief.
