Today we are going to be covering SI Joint dysfunction. Oh that is a controversial topic. And we are going to be reviewing Tim’s Hawaiian Ginger Wasabi compliments of Steve Kovisto. Why did you say Steve’s. Not Tim’s. It’s the brand name, the brand name is Tim’s. No it’s Hawaiian. No it’s Tim’s. Ok, That does not make any sense. You are right that does not make any sense. They are special. Ok. Looking forward to it. SI joint dysfunction.
What is your take on it Christiaan? The SI joint is a pseudo-joint. It’s kind of misnamed isn’t it? It’s very misnamed, it’s where several bones come together. Yeah but It’s not like any other joint in the body that is a nice smooth congruent surface that is designed for movement. That’s true. The SI joint was designed for a lot of things but movement was not one of them.
The articular surfaces, if you even want to call them that, are basically course and have ridges and depressions. They are almost like 2 interlocking ridges. If you were designing that for movement you would do a bad job. I almost said a bad word. The best way to think of it is to take your knuckles and stick them together. That is kind of what they look like. Yup, which would provide a ton of stability. Yes, That is what we are looking for. Mobility not Stability.
The joint itself has about total of 3 degrees or less of translation which accounts to about 2mm or less of movement. That is not a lot. If you know millimeters that is less then a 1/32 of an inch.
