Hi, I'm Natalie, and today Veritas Health is going to bring you a 1 minute stretch for SI Joint Pain relief. This is a simple knee to chest stretch with some light muscle activation to help stretch out the muscles that connect into the pelvis.

If this increases your symptoms or causes pain, please discontinue and consult with your medical provider.

You can lay either on the floor or on a bed, wherever's comfortable. You'll lay on your back with one leg out straight. You'll take the leg you want to start stretching with.

First, put your fingers behind your thigh and bring it to your chest.

Then you're going to lightly push your thigh into your hands. Hold that for 5 seconds, then relax and then pull back into a stretch and repeat that process. Good.

And then we're going to go over to the other side. Same thing, holding that muscle activation component for about 5 seconds.

You can work your way up to performing five to ten sets of this for each side with about a five second hold.
