Sacroiliac Joints (SI)Updated 2 years ago

Sacroiliac joint pain most commonly occurs due to either muscle weakness in the area causing joint instability, damaged tissues in the area causing inflammation, or osteoarthritis from wearing down of the joint cartilage. 

Studies found SI joint dysfunction with gluteus maximus weakness demonstrated improvements in function, pain, and strength after completing a strengthening program. These results support the inclusion of gluteus maximus strengthening exercises in those with persistent lumbopelvic pain and clinical tests positive for SI joint dysfunction. 

The NeuroMD Corrective Therapy Device works by stimulating the muscles at the motor point. Once the motor neurons are stimulated, the muscles begin to relax and contract, much in the same way as conventional exercise (but in a more controlled manner). 

Additionally, NeuroMD™ is able to stimulate deeper muscles, which stabilize the joints in the area that traditional rehabilitation and therapy would deem unreachable. The device can be placed on most muscles groups except the neck and chest. 

With sacroiliac joint pain we find that treatment areas of the lower back and each gluteus maximus muscle provides the best results. Each muscle group should be stimulated no more than 5 times per week, giving 2 days per week for resting and recovering.
