The sacroiliac joints are located in the pelvis and link the ilium bones (pelvis) to the sacrum (the lowest part of the spine). They are essentially strong weight-bearing joints that function to absorb forces from various directions and are particularly significant during gait.

Dysfunction of the sacroiliac joints is a common cause of lower back pain, so it's important to keep them mobile and prevent them from stiffening up which can often happen if you spend a lot of time sitting down and live a sedentary lifestyle.

Here are five movements you can perform at home:

  1. Contract-Relax Knee Hug

  2. Double Bent Knee Alternating Knee Reach

  3. Standing and forward bend Salsa Hips
