SI joint dysfunction and how we can help

SI joint dysfunction can cause low back pain, hip pain, radiating pain down your back leg and various other symptoms that are frustrating and tough to deal with.

In this video, I am going to show you how the drop adjustment works for the pelvis and spine and how it can help you to alleviate your symptoms.

Lumbar flexion exercise to help with recovering from back pain

In this video, I show you the lumbar flexion exercise that really helped me after I was recovering from a low back injury many years ago.  

This exercise I show is a more advanced exercise, as I am doing it with weights.  So please only do this if you are capable and start without weights to see how it feels before progressing.  This is standing lumbar flexion.  Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart and in good posture with shoulders back and head up, and slowly bend forward at the waist, moving each spinal segment individually from your neck all the way down to your tailbone. Reach your hands down towards your feet as far as you can comfortably go without pain, and hold this position for two to three seconds and with your arms hanging.  You can add a bit of a slow sway if it feels good. Then, do the opposite and slowly raise up, spinal segment by segment, and return to the starting position.

If you are performing the low back flexion exercise and the symptoms worsen, you feel severe pain or pain down your legs, STOP the exercise and seek expert advice.

Drop adjustments for severe low back pain

Are you concerned about the “pop” you hear during a manual adjustment?

Although a manual adjustment is very safe and the right move for the right population, there are alternatives.

At Campbell Chiropractic Centre, we offer DROP adjustments that are safe and effective.

No pops or clicks, but all the results.

An excellent core exercise that doesn’t involve spinal flexion

Hold the kettlebell by your side and walk while engaging your core, like you would if you were carrying a suitcase 😉

The suitcase carry is a simple exercise that targets the muscles in your core, shoulders, upper back, arms, and the muscles of your lower body, specifically the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluts, hip flexors, and calves. It’s also a useful move for improving grip strength.
