Your low back pain and/or leg pain might be affected by sacroiliac joint dysfunction

Sacroiliac Joints Disfunction

Sacroiliac Joints dysfunction generally refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint region that is caused by abnormal motion in the sacroiliac joint, either too much motion (hypo-mobility) or too little motion (hyper-mobility).

It typically results in inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, and can be debilitating such us with hip joint disfunction.

The sacroiliac joint is a true diarthrodial joint that joins the sacrum to the pelvis.

The pelvic girdle is made up of two innominate bones (the iliac bones) and the sacrum. The innominate bones  join in the front of the pelvis to form the pubic symphysis, and at back of the sacrum to form the sacroiliac joints.

Each innominate bone joins the femur(thigh bone) to form the hip joint. Thus the sacroiliac joint moves with walking and movement of the torso.

According to this anatomy, we understand there is possibility sacroiliac joint will affect some problems on the hip joint with sitting and walking.

If there is the sacroiliac joint dysfunction, we have some symptoms on the groin region and hip joint.

Studies have documented that motion does occur at the joint. Therefore, slightly sublimed and even locked positions can occur.

Muscles and ligaments surround and attach to the SI Joint in the front and back, primarily on the ilial or sacral surfaces. These can all be a source of pain and inflammation if the SI joint is dysfunctional.

For decades, the sacroiliac joint was suspected to be a common cause of low back and/or leg pain, although difficulty in probing it with standard diagnostic tests left many in the medical profession skeptical.  Also, over  the last twenty to thirty years, the medical profession has focused more on discogenic pain (herniated disc, degenerative disc disease) as a common cause of low back and/or leg pain.

In the Motion Palpation it can be seen sacroiliac joint is dysfunctional, or not. Your complain might also be affected by sacroiliac joint.

Joint pain refers to the slightly movement that occurs in the adjoining bone so called 

In recent years in Japan, greater focus has been placed on a condition called “joint dysfunction” as the reason behind many people’s back pain, stiff shoulders, and joint pain. 

These condition refers to the slightly movement that occurs in the adjoining bone is irregular. This slightly movement is called “Joint Play”.

“Joint Play” “Accessary Movement” “Intra-articular Movement” “Joint Mobility”

Theses words have a same meanings. In the following I use “Joint Play”
In life, the voluntary movements cannot be achieved unless certain well-defined movements of “joint play” are present. Movements of “joint play” are independent of the Voluntary movement.

There are some “joint play” such as rolling, sliding, spinning on the joint surfaces, and traction and compression.

In 1949, Mennell introduced through the investigation of Joint Play involving the voluntary movements on full range motion.

Abnormal “Joint Play” cannot be picked up by an X-ray, MRI, or any other method of diagnostic imaging.

“Motion Palpation” is diagnostic tool when I find out abnormal “Joint Play”

What is Joint Play? What is Motion Palpation?

In recent years in Japan, greater focus has been placed on a condition called “joint dysfunction” as the reason behind many people’s back pain, stiff shoulders, and joint pain.
This condition refers to when joints responsible for what is called “joint play” are moved, and the movement that occurs in the adjoining ends of the bone is irregular; this abnormality cannot be picked up by an X-ray, MRI, or any other method of diagnostic imaging.

One of my skills which is called “Motion Palpation” is a method of examining “Joint Play”.
I provide the treatment so-called Manipulation, Mobilizaiton against disorder of  joint play.


All synovial and secondary cartilaginous joints, to some extent, are capable of an active range-of-motion, termed voluntary movement.
There is a small range of movement that can be obtained only passively by the examiner.

This movement is called joint play, or accessory movement.

Theses accessory movements are not under voluntary control.

In 1949, Mennell introduced through the investigation of arthrokinematic approach involving the voluntary movements on full range motion;
this movement named the Joint Play distributed the main factors of the concomitant movement of the joint. 

My method is to treat abnormalities of the intra-articular movements such as joint play, rolling, sliding, and spinning of the joint surface.
Thereby taking  care of restricted synovial joints

Motion palpation is a method of examining joint play.
Motion palpation’s strong point is as a diagnostic tool. 
Good motion palpation skills are always proceeded by good static palpation skills
Motion palpation is a method of examining joint play and diagnostic tool.
But if you add a slight pressure, motion palpation become tool of treatment.

Treatment Targets

Symptoms of this joint dysfunction are not limited to back pain, stiff shoulders, and joint pain;
It could also cause headaches, menstrual pain, as well as symptoms with seemingly unknown causes, such as numbness in the hands and feet, and dizziness. Additionally, for cases in which joint dysfunction occurs in the joints of the pelvic area, if left untreated, this could lead to degeneration of the intervertebral discs, such as a herniated disc or spinal canal stenosis.

Moreover, if it occurs in the shoulder or back, in addition to pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders, the situation could lead to tenosynovitis, or even expand to the arms to cause medial epicondylitis.
From my clinical experience, there have been many cases in which the patient was diagnosed at the hospital as having CRPS, but recovered, or saw great improvements, through treatment of joint dysfunction.
The same thing could be said for pain, numbness, and abnormal sensations (burning sensation, coldness) diagnosed as “neuropathic pain,” which is a term that is heard increasingly often these days. For such pain, it is conceivable that the cause of the pain was in the joints and not the nerves, or that the joint-based pain lasted for so long that it shifted to nerve-based pain.
