3 Steps to Permanent Relief for SI Joint and Pelvic Pain

Today we are going to cover the 3 steps topermanent relief for pelvic and SI joint pain. Now what is SI joint painé The SI joint, ifyou do have SI joint pain, is pain on either side of the tailbone where the tailbone connectsto the pelvis. So this is a drawing of the pelvis. This is your tailbone. This isyour lumbar spine or your lower back, the bones in your lower back called vertebraesitting on top of your tailbone. Then on either side of that you have your right hip or yourleft hip if we are looking at a person from the front. When we see somebody with SI jointpain, they will typically have pain on that given side. 70% of the time, it is on theright side. Don't ask me why that is but

70% of the time we know it is on the right. You canalso get shooting groin pain, buttocks pain and symptoms down the outside of the leg thatis affected. It might be pain, numbness, tingling, burning. Typically, that personsuffers from a heaviness as well. It can also cause some incontinence and leaking issuesas along to effect sexual performance as well. It can be absolutely devastating ifthe pelvic problem is bad enough. Fortunately, most people just have pain on one side. Sowhat can you do about ité That person who has SI joint problems typically has troublerolling over in bed, getting in and out of a car, crossing one leg over the other. Usuallythey have trouble sitting for long periods

of time especially if it is on a couch or a softsurface. So it can be absolutely devastating. Now what are the steps to permanent relieffor thaté Number 1 is this. Most people when we seethem if they are going to try exercises on their own and they only have a little bitof SI joint pain or pelvic pain, they are doing stretches. Yes, there is a very basic stretchwhich most people show me on Day 1. It is a piriformis stretch which is where you grabthe knee and pull it up and across to the opposite shoulder. It will give the personwho suffers pelvic or SI joint problems and pain temporary relief. However, long termwe don't want to stretch. We want to

strengthen or stabilize. Why is thaté Whensomebody has an SI joint problem, so the center of gravity of your entire body is inthe center of your pelvis. That needs to move the right way and it needs to be stable whenyou are doing day to day activities. If it is not stable enough, what will happen is thejoint will move so far that it becomes stuck. So if we are looking at the tailbone, we havethe tailbone and we have the pelvis and you get a normal gliding day to day. If morestress, more force is put through the pelvis than the pelvis itself can handle, that SIjoint can handle, what will happen is you actually become stuck. Now that creates allsorts of problems for the muscle around it.

What most people do is try to stretch theirway out of it. The problem is not stretching and it is not flexibility. It is actuallya stability issue. If we want to stabilize, we need to do strengthening exercises. If you go on ourYouTube channel, on the Madden PT official YouTube channel, there is a tutorialcalled Top 3 Exercises for SI Joint and Pelvic Stability. They are very low grade, kindergartenlevelexercises where you can at least begin stabilizing the muscles that controlyour pelvis. But we don't want to stretch, we want to think stabilize. Step 2 is we want to take a look at our habits.So what are some habits that lead to

pelvic instability and problemsé Number oneis standing with the weight shifted. So if I'm standing like this with my weight shiftedside to side for long periods of time, what that does is over years and years and yearsit weakens the ligaments which are tissue that hold joints together that we can't control.Think about somebody with an ankle sprain. They sprained a ligament. They stretchedthe ligament but it is not a muscle. It is different than a muscle. There are littlehabits that we do. If I stand like this and let's say I weigh 175 pounds and if I'm standinglike this, I have 150 pounds on one side and 25 pounds on the other. Where if I'm standingbalanced, I have 87 ½ pounds on each

Adrenal Fatigue Related Health Conditions

This is Lam. Adrenal Fatiguerelated healthconditions can be broadly classified into five main areas. First, we have metabolicsystem imbalances. Now, anybody with severe Adrenal Fatigue will be able to tell you thatthey have a problem maintaining their blood sugar at a level that is very, very steady.Part of the reason is because hypoglycemia is commonly associated with Adrenal Fatigue,even though, if you measure the blood level of the sugar, it is considered normal andnot considered low. This is normally due to a combination of low cortisol and a high insulinlevel when the body is under stress. The normal stress response by the adrenal gland is toincrease the blood sugar level. However, glucose

release is slowed as the output of cortisolreduces during later stages of Adrenal Fatigue, such as what happens in adrenal exhaustion.Hypoglycemia itself is a significant stress on the entire body, especially on the adrenal,so you have a vicious cycle that goes on. While this can be overcome by sugar fixesinitially, in mild Adrenal Fatigue – and that's why people take CocaCola, or PepsiCola, or pop drinks, as well as donuts or juices to give themselves that little boost,this is only a quick fix, and usually the symptoms will come back after only a shorttime, usually within one or two hours. This cycle, if it continues, this will make theperson more drained, and towards the end of

the day, the person will feel nearly exhausted,without having done anything. Low blood sugar is usually most likely to occur, therefore,around 10 AM and 2 PM, as well as from 34 PM. Hypoglycemia is also related to the autonomicnervous system dysfunction, which we will describe later. Secondly, we have a musculoskeletalsystem breakdown. Now, collagen and protein are broken down in a catabolic state of functionduring Adrenal Fatigue. This can lead to chronic pain syndromes, joint pain, chronic fatigue,and fibromyalgia. It must be remembered that the glucocorticoids, primarily cortisol, aresteroidal hormones produced by the adrenal glands as a response to stress. Cortisol outputis high in stage 1 and stage 2, and then as

the Adrenal Fatigue progresses, the cortisoloutput often is pushed to the limit, and then finally goes down. As cortisol goes up, oneof the side effects of this hormone is the breakdown of protein, resulting in an overallnet catabolic state, meaning the amount of buildup of the muscle is less than the amountof breakdown, so as a result, broken down muscles are not adequately replaced. Collagenis broken down without significant replenishment. Outwardly, wrinkles start to develop as prematureaging sets in. Internally, organs and muscle breakdowns tends to lead to chronic muscleand joint pains of unknown origin, especially after strenuous exercise or heavy lifting.Adrenal Fatigue therefore is often associated

with poor ability to digest protein, as wellas the gastrointestinal systems tend to slow down. This will only add to the musculoskeletalpain and syndromes. It should come, therefore, as no surprise that that secondary fibromyalgiaand chronic fatigue are commonly associated with adrenal exhaustion. Third, we go intoneurological system dysfunctions, and this can be divided into various categories. BecauseAdrenal Fatigue can lead to insomnia, sleep disturbances, brain fog, anxiety and depressionif the central nervous system is involved. Peripheral nervous system dysfunction is oftenassociated with orthostatic hypertension, dizziness, lightheadedness, temperature intolerance,fainting spells, tingling and numbness sensation

of extremities, as well as sweating disregulation.First we talked about central nervous system imbalances. When you have imbalances of theadrenal gland, then what starts to happen is you have sleep disorders. Both too highand too low nighttime cortisol level can cause sleep disturbances. Waking up between 13AM is a characteristic of low blood sugar during this time, as well as cortisol imbalances.Sometimes it is accompanied by nightmares, sudden onset of heart palpitations, anxietyattacks, and cold sweats. Chronic lack of sleep is strongly associated with decreasedimmunity, as well, and impaired glucose intolerance, as well as the decreased alertness and concentration.Cortisol, DHEA, testosterone, and estrogen
