Introduction

Sacroiliac dysfunction affects an estimated 10-30% of persons with non-specific low back pain and is often present with complaints of hip and leg pain on the same side. It often goes undiagnosed and may actually be one of the sources of low back pain. Pelvic girdle and sacroiliac pain affects 56-72% of women during pregnancy and post-partum and 7% continue to have pain and dysfunction for the rest of their lives. Physiotherapists are best suited to help these patients. Deborah Riczo developed the Pelvic Girdle Musculoskeletalsm (PGM) Method and during the 12 courses in this programme, she will give you the tools to simply, effectively and accurately manage your patients with pelvic girdle dysfunction (PGD).
