Abstract

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is widely considered as a potential source for pain in the lumbosacral region. Treatment modalities vary from electrotherapy (TENS, diadynamic, interferential currents), massage, manual therapy and exercises to joint fusion. The treatment of sacroiliac joint dysfunction presents a clinical challenge and a construction of optimized approach framework is still needed. The aim was to compare the effects of two physical therapy approaches in treating this condition. A total of 71 patients with chronic LBP due to sacroiliac joint dysfunction were treated in the period 2009 – 2012. The patients were divided in two groups (A – control n=30 and B experimental n=41), underwent treatment comprised of mobilizing and manipulative techniques and exercises. The results of this research showed reduction of pain, improvement in muscles strength and balance and lumbar and pelvic stability in both groups but more prominent in the experimental group.
