Progressive Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, one of Orange County’s premier private outpatient clinics, announced today the establishment of an SI Joint Dysfunction Clinic according to Michael McKindley, DPT.
“SI Joint Dysfunction is one of the most misdiagnosed conditions,” McKindley said. “Every year we see over 100 patients with this issue. Many have gone years without relief and have even ailed physical therapy elsewhere. Having developed a comprehensive approach to treating this low back and hip pain disorder, we have established a SI Joint Clinic to focus more attention through education, awareness, and treatment for patients to seek relief.”
Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction occurs when the sacroiliac joints of the pelvis become stiff or weak. The condition can develop at any age. Symptoms typically are felt on one side of the back. SIJ dysfunction is found in 10% to 25% of people who complain of low back pain. It is most often diagnosed in females, especially those who have had children.. Physical therapists treat SIJ dysfunction to help reduce pain and restore movement and function for improved quality of life.
