Low Back Pain and SI Pain

“In a study done by researchers from the department of epidemiology of the University of Pittsburgh, of the 108 students with a history of low back pain, 88% tested positive for SI dysfunction. The author’s note a high degree of association between SI dysfunction/subluxation and lower back pain, which suggest a relationship between SI dysfunction and LBP. Given the common clinical experience of obtaining symptomatic relief by SI manipulation.”
