  • NO WAY!!!!!!!! After my first pregnancy nearly 15 years ago, I have had various degrees of SI pain. Hours of physio, massage, chiropractor and yoga have helped, but NOTHING has given me the ‘click’ that I was looking for, until that movement on the couch when you drop your leg off the side. BINGO!!!! Genius!!! Thank you so much. I could’ve saved myself a fortune if I’d seen this earlier!

  • The si definitely moves, ask me how I know. Because when I'm in severe pain that little bump on my back doesn't move when I lift my knee up. When it doesn't hurt it moves about the width of my finger up and down. It sucks, I'm laying on a heat pad with tens therapy while watching this.

  • Dear Mr. Hirsch, Thank for your valuable information. I had to have hysterectomy surgery due to a pendulating fibroid. It was complicated. I ended up having cervical cancer. During brachyotherpy something went wrong and I had extruciating pain and could no longer stand and walk (12 yrs. ago).
    I've had MRIs and many tests, but no diagnosis. I'm thinking it's related to SI. Do you recommend a p.t. or chiropractor? Many thanks.

  • Great suggestions! Eager to try them out. Thanks again!

  • I woke up yesterday with a lot of pan to my lower back on the left side, so I watched your other video that showed how to work out if the pain was joint, nerve or muscle. Identified it as SI joint. Doing the left leg hanging off the bed exercise has made a very noticeable difference. Thanks so much!

  • You both help me a lot during my joint problems

  • Start with the excercises already!

  • Omg you are lifesavers, I was so grumpy from pain and this helped so much!

  • It’s also common in people who have previously had a spinal fusion! After a fusion at L5/S1 after 2 failed microdiscectomies from a severe herniated disc. 2 years later I felt a different kind of pain, totally different than my sciatica which was the worst part of the herniated disc. My PT showed me a couple of these, but you taught me some new ones! Stressing the importance of doing exercises frequently-something I need to be reminded of ☺️ I’m commenting on a 2 year old video, but I would love to hear opinions on SI injections. I had one 3 weeks ago and didn’t see much change. This is, at times quality of life affecting pain. I desperately want to avoid more surgery (though I don’t necessarily regret my fusion, I don’t want to become the Terminator.)
