complaints that are caused by the spine.
I have specialized in eliminating movement disorders as a result of an incorrect pelvic position and the
resulting pain complaints.
The pelvis is the foundation of the body. Deviations in its position can cause complaints throughout the
The joints between the sacrum and the two pelvic halves are called the Sacro-iliac joints, abbreviated
Trauma can cause shifts within the SI joint.
This can be caused by:
- falls: often the case with horse riders, skaters and cyclists
- childbirth: risk for both the mother and the newborn child
Due to the trauma, the joint surfaces no longer fit together correctly, making the joint immobile,
In the medical world, often only the localization of the complaint or the joint that is affected is
considered.In doing so, the cause of the occurrence is often overlooked. In my view it is essential to
have the entire body inspected
subjects, to discover the position deviations and to examine all involved joints for changes in the
position of the involved bone pieces
It is important to compare arm and leg movements of the left and right side of the body.
There are also changes in the spine as a result of the trauma. The movements of all vertebrae relative
toeach other must be examined for the presence of any blockages (changes in position within the joint)
The most common symptoms that are caused by a position error within the SI joint are:
- Radiating pain and tingling from the lower back to the side and/or front of the thigh.
- Radiating pain to the side of the lower leg into the foot.
- Sometimes only complaints of the upper leg or of the lower back on one side.
- Unexplained knee and Achilles tendon complaints.
- Shoulder, elbow and wrist complaints
- Sometimes the pain radiates over the pelvic crest and forward into the abdomen, so unexplained
- Pain on one side of the head due to blockage of the upper cervical vertebra in relation to the skull
- Headache behind or above the eyes.
Often patients with SI blockage are extremely tired, they are constantly looking for the right posture,
because they cannot sit on both buttocks and cannot stand on both legs for a long time.
These patients often slump in the chair or sit crookedly or on the edge of the chair.
been extensively medically examined and treated without any kind of result.
These complaints can be treated using the Mulligan techniques, often with good results after just a
