The pelvis comprises of three bones: the ischium, ilium, and pubis. These bones, in combination with strong ligaments, creates what is known as the pelvic girdle. The pelvic region is highly susceptible to injury, as it serves as the connection of the spine to the lower body.
Pelvic dysfunction can be a result of abnormal stresses from anywhere in the body. The most common regions of pelvic pain are in the sacroiliac joints (SI joints) or pelvic floor. They can cause severe life-impacting pain and physical limitations. Pelvic pain has many different origins and presentations and should always be evaluated by a medical professional.

Pelvic pain has many origins and presentations and can affect a patient in many different ways. The region of pain might not be the region that is causing your current issue. Our team of doctors evaluates each patient through a detailed history and comprehensive physical exam that includes a series of dynamic and static tests, postural exam, GAIT analysis, and examination of the lower or upper extremity movement patterns that trigger your symptoms. This thorough examination will allow us to identify what is causing your pain or dysfunction and begin working on an individualized treatment plan with corrective exercises that fits your exact needs.
