Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction And Lumbopelvic Pathomechanics
The Hesch Method is an innovative approach, making the complexities of the pelvis and sacroiliac understandable with a relevant, clinical useful approach. SIJD is fraught with confusion and misunderstanding. Yet 25-30% of the back pain population is reported to have a component of SIJD. Evaluation and treatment needs to evolve with the science and research. This method, a unique subset of Orthopedic Manual Therapy, presents a new approach to evaluation and treatment, in which spring tests are enhanced to a kinesthetic skill known as“Springing with AwarenessTM”. The practitioner can thoroughly assess the lumbopelvic structure in all planes of the body, thus demystifying complex pathomechanics. Treatment using gentle, low-load, long-duration input goes beyond brief elastic deformation into long lasting (plastic) reorganization of dense connective tissue.
