More recently, Laslett et al assessed the diagnostic utility of the McKenzie evaluation combined with the following SIJ tests: distraction, thigh thrust, Gaenslen. The SIJ (Sacroiliac joint) Distraction (Colloquially know as Gapping) test is used to of an SIJ sprain or dysfunction when used in the Laslett SIJ Cluster testing. (Laslett et al., ). Conceptually, it seems reasonable to propose that stress testing of the SIJ should provoke pain of SIJ origin. However, clinical stress tests .

The SIJ is joint that moves, transmits forces a lot kaslett them and has muscle and fascial connections, and is ultimately controlled by the CNS. On this basis, it seems reasonable to assume that SIJ tests, positive in the presence of the centralization phenomenon, are falsely positive. Werneke M, Hart DL.

Evidence-Based Diagnosis and Treatment of the Painful Sacroiliac Joint

My advice is to get a really good assessment and see what you need! Great job and thanks for sharing Harrison! Nevertheless, PTs for years have gotten good results from such a treatment approach. A clinical prediction rule for classifying patients with low back pain who demonstrate short-term improvement with spinal manipulation. He was a type of guy who was hesitant to agree initially but wound up getting much better through conservative care. If it is lax, how does this affect the lumbopelvic-hip complex?


Randomised single blind controlled trial. A two-year follow-up of a randomized clinical trial; pp. In my experience, you have to use a decent amount of force during the thigh thrust technique to avoid missing a positive provactive sign.

The amount of motion of the SI joint motion is extremely small, perhaps less than 2mm and 2 degrees of translation and rotation. Wetzel FT, Donelson R. Examiner delivers an anteriorly directed thrust over the sacrum. In addition, we discuss some of the issues here: In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references.

A cohort study of llaslett consequences in terms of health and functioning; pp. When looking at the sacrum you always have to look at L5 as well.

While these treatments could be studied separately, it may be preferable that the treatment arm of the study follow a sequence with an initial period of stabilization training followed by steroid injection for those patients not achieving a satisfactory outcome laxlett exercise. Good Reads of the Week: Thanks again, Mike Reply. In general, inter-examiner reliability of individual tests is poor 1317 — 25but some tests have shown adequate reliability 26 Centralization phenomenon as a prognostic factor for chronic low back pain and disability.

This finding reinforces the idea that the manipulation technique is not specific to the SI region but impacts the lumbar spine as well After the McKenzie evaluation, patients with discogenic pain was ruled out.


Cibulka MT, Koldehoff R. The presentation does not alert the examiner to the SIJ.

Evidence-Based Diagnosis and Treatment of the Painful Sacroiliac Joint

Macroscopic and histological studies. Not an easy thing to teach, laslrtt be sure, but something it sounds to me like you appreciate quite well.

SIJ Pain Mapping 5.

An alternate method of radiofrequency neurotomy of the sacroiliac joint: In this paper, these two terms will be clearly differentiated. Lasleth for the post Mike. The anatomical basis for spinal pain syndromes. Horton SJ, Franz A. Because a lazlett proportion of back patients with discogenic pain can be identified using the McKenzie system of evaluation to determine the presence of the centralization phenomenon, the following SIJCPR can be easily applied to the great majority of back pain patients:.

Negative Likelihood Ratio LR- — The ratio of a negative test result in people with the pathology to a negative test result in people without the pathology. While I appreciate the Laslett study and instruct on those cluster of tests, I am not a fan of provocation testing unless it leads to treatment. Women who are 3rd trimester or late second trimester also benefit from a stabilization belt.

Otherwise it is hard to say, but I feel your frustration.
