Sacro Iliac – What is it?

Most people dont know where their sacroiliac joints are, yet more and more yogis know where it is because it aches, and because it aches and has been troublesome in their yoga practice.

The bones of the lower back include a very important stabiliser – the sacrum. The sacrum is a triangular bone at the bottom of the spine, tucked between hip bones.Health practitoners consider the Sacroiliac joint to be the most common cause of lower back pain, and more common than disc problems.220px-Sacroiliac_joint

Controversy can strike within the yoga community about many ways of teaching, and one of the biggest debates is over the small, barely mobile, sacroiliac joint – to tuck or not tuck. It is a question that can heated, especially by long term practitioners who swear they know the right way. And new practitioners that will swear they have “healed” their pain by stretching more.

It doesnt matter which side of the fence you are on in the tucking question, but we can all agree that Sacro iliac misalignment is PAINFUL!

Sacro iliac Misalignment

As I travel throughout the US and SE Asia to  teach yoga, I see more and more yogis developing pain around their sacroiliac joints. I think we may be practicing without understanding what is causing the pain, and what might help to alleviate pain, and stabilise the joint.

You can have different areas of weak and tight muscles in torso, shoulders and legs which will affect sacroiliac joint problems. This will affect your personal yoga practice and yoga teachers have a great responsibility to avoid causing additional Sacroiliac problems in students.Pelvis-normal

Sacroiliac dysfunction can be caused by injury, muscle imbalances or differences between the left and right sides of the body. Sacroiliac dysfunction can be exacerbated and even caused by misaligned yoga poses.

Asymmetrical poses like Trikonasana, Virabhadrasana I, II & III, Parsvakonasana and variations in backbending can exacerbate SI dysfunction if practiced without awareness of the pelvis and differences in individual bodies.

The core-muscle stabilisers of the sacroiliac joint are the pelvic floor muscles, lower Transverse Abdominis and the Multifidis (deep stabilisers of the spine). Learn to stabilise in standing poses and backbending, so you can move limbs without clenching the hip muscles or shifting hipbones. This will help to stabilise your practice of sequences without irritating the sacroiliac joint.
