S.I joint pain...

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,322
...hey all,

Was wondering if anyone else has experienced pain in the S.I joint from squats and deadlifts... I am nursing a pretty inflamed SI joint and experiencing some serious sciatic pain down the back of my leg due to it. Seems all the muscles in my butt (glute medius, piriformis etc) are in lockdown and its taking forever to heal up. Been to the chiro, massage and accupuncture but am getting mixed feedback as to how to get through it. One says total rest the other says stretching and light exercise. Im thinking the pool and light stretching and training just upper till its better....any help or insight would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,




  • I have severe SI joint dysfunction as well as spine issues I am having my 360 fusion surgery tomorrow! The physical therapist has me doing hamstring stretching for my SI problems. Have you seen a doctor? I would see one ASAP if you haven't and follow his advice since we are all different. Does it seem to be just muscle pain? Please see a doctor, or maybe a sports medicine clinician. Good Luck to you and get well.
