Sacroiliac Pain, Understanding the Pelvic Girdle Musculoskeletal Method is now available exclusively from OPTP. The book, written by physical therapist Deborah B. Riczo, contains three sections and provides basic education, screening guidelines, and exercises for those affected by sacroiliac dysfunction.
The book helps readers recognize sacroiliac pain by highlighting its location, common causes, and typical symptoms. It also introduces the Pelvic Girdle Musculoskeletal Method, a program that empowers individuals to monitor their symptoms and address them with exercises that focus on muscle imbalances and weakness. Step-by-step instructions for the exercises are provided, complete with supporting video links.
The book also includes instruction on breathing for relaxation and pain management; tips on beginning a walking program and progression to other forms of exercise; education regarding use of a sacroiliac belt and other frequently asked questions; and exercise planners for logging and tracking workouts.
