Pelvic girdle dysfunction and sacroiliac joint dysfunction are frequent contributors to low back pain. It is also recognised as a multifactorial problem with specific characteristics such as pain location and provoking activities. Various models of disorders and mechanical dysfunctions have been proposed such as joint laxity, failed load transfer and abnormalities of joint alignment. Because of this diversity in proposed mechanisms, there is diversity in treatments offered, many with little evidence to support them. Even among experts in the area of pelvic girdle dysfunction and sacroiliac pain, there seems to be a lack of consensus with regards to diagnosing and managing these dysfunctions. In this fourth course on pelvic girdle dysfunction, Deborah Riczo provides us with an in-depth review of the available evidence on the diagnosis, interventions and outcome measures of pelvic girdle dysfunction.
The aim of this course is to critically appraise the available literature on pelvic girdle dysfunction, concentrating on evidence for diagnostic tools, outcome measures and specific interventions.
