  1. Hey guys… I have pain in my low right back… squats and deadlifts seem to trigger it… at certain angles it seems to trigger it, and starts to spasm.
    Same spot every time.

    Does that sound like a muscle issue or joint/disc?

  2. your videos are excellent i have learned to do many exercises by watching you and your partner brad and it has helped me with chronic neck and back pain thank you and I want to see more of your videos 👍

  3. You guys are the best! I had some major SI issues not long ago, but I am steadily recovering and not backsliding despite increasing my activity (yay!). Some ppl might find it useful to know that their sleeping situation might cause/worsen SI joint pain. My pain went from being a small bother here and there (with some moderate flare-ups) to being a major issue after I changed mattresses. I used to sleep on a very firm mattress on the floor, and then I changed to a squishy mattress on a regular bed frame. Also, the mattress was older and seemed a bit sunken in the middle (so I was essentially crooked all night). I began sleeping on the floor (on a camping pad over hardwood flooring) this past summer, and I have felt better and better. No more mattresses for me!

  4. I have this problem after having 9 kids. I am very fit which helps but when this hurts it is awful. I think strengthening your hips with exercises helps tighten things up.

  5. I can't believe the timing of this video! Right now I have pain in the sacroiliac area for which I have seen a physiotherapist. Ligament strain which resulted in pain on the left side, which radiated down the back of my leg. Happened through bad posture maintained for a period of time while drumming (African djembe). Thank you so much!

  6. I was using the first technique and I felt relief, but when I would lower my leg I felt and heard a popping sound in my hip and then my butt muscles will begin to twitch. They only happen to my left leg which also is the leg that hurts. I was wondering what that could be and if I should be concerned. Thank you guys for your many videos! I have problems with sciatica and a big one that helps me is standing offset from a wall and then meeting my hip to the wall! Thank you guys!

  7. I started with S I pain after my first born 30 odd years ago. It comes back periodically and I see my Physiotherapist but I will try these exercises they look great. Thank you, your videos are excellent. Keep them coming

  8. Please don't let the trolls dictate how you do your videos. If they don't like your examples and anecdotes they should go elsewhere. I appreciate the opportunity to learn as much as possible.

  9. guys i really really need to know how to help my lower legs after i stand and walk all day.when i go home and sit down my lower legs throb and ache with pain.please help.thank you love u guys! 😁🙋‍♀️

  10. Perfect timing for this video. My SI has been acting up for a few days now. Just completed 1 set of these stretches and I already feel relief. Thank you both.

  11. Thank you for this video! It was exactly what I needed! You two are great, along with all the others who help create your videos. Many blessings to you all!

  12. Thank you so much for your great videos. I have a question. I have Chronic Lymphedemia in my torso and legs, I've trapped a nerve in my back which causes my left foot to go semi numb on the sole when I lie down. Are there any exercises I can do to help?

  13. How about running over a curve or or other items on the road. I get this pain when I run on the street vice the trail. It’s awful.

  14. Hi Guys, great videos … thank you! I have an issue that is not the result of trauma. It started after playing drums for the first time in a while about two months ago. The groin pain started immediately, bit has spread over time. My pain is located in the groin, inner thigh, hip and butt cheek of my right leg. The stretches in this video have not alleviated the problem. I visited my chiropractor twice earlier this week but the pain has increased in intensity, after heat packs, electrical stimulation and adjustment of the hip area. I haven't found any of your videos dealing with this type of pain. Medications are not resolving it. Did I miss a video you have previously done that addresses this type of injury? Please help!

  15. Awesome videos. I’ve had numerous experiences with professionals diagnosing my lower back pain as a rectus femoris or psoas issue. Been doing these exercises for some time now with great success and reductions in pain. You definitely have my subscription.

  16. Ya'll are so helpful. I did some of your hip arthritis stretches and finally got some relief after 5 years. Any advice for a psoriatic arthritis patient? Mine is in my SI, lower back, right knee and right ankle with both Achilles tendons inflamed at times.

  17. Just want to say “ you two rock…You are the best at explaining with a sense of humour exactly what to do for pain and the cause of it..I have been in pain for two and half years..and it is not plaisant .. keep the videos coming with info,, we love them.. thank you for your compassion and great advise..❤️

  18. Have you considered Facebook live so we can ask questions. Great videos. Thanks. And like that they are short but get a mic.

  19. What are your feelings on use of gravity chairs would that help or hinder back strengthening or helping fix si issues?

  20. I have lower back/one side hip pain after standing for a short period of time say 10 mins and its only relieved either by sitting or lifting the affected knee up. It feels like I need the SI joint cracking just to relieve the pressure! Sometimes a sciatica type pain happens when I'm in bed or sitting. What do I have?!

  21. Guys! I thought you were chiropractors! Now I see you are PTs, phew! I am dying to get rid of my SI joint pain which is incapacitating. Went to PT twice for 2 months, it got better, and now it's back to boot camp. They didn't teach me what you show. Keep up the great work! Thank you!

  22. In your test where where you are lying on a bench or bed, with the one leg over the side of the bed, and pointing towards the floor, the bed, is the sacroiliac joint, of the leg pointing towards the floor, being moved forward or backward?

  23. I have RA and Fibromyalgia. My SI joints throb constantly. Right side more than left. Also have bursitis in the right hip. I have had SI joint injections, facet injections, hip injections you name it. I am worried about the steroids having long term effects on me but they do give me great relief. I have been trying more healthy ways to reduce pain and improve my near zero flexibility. Thank you so much for your videos!!!! They help us so much. Between this, meditation, deep breathing, and my regular doctor visits including massage therapy, hopefully me and others like myself can manage the pain!

  24. Hi, Bob and Brad thanks for sharing the video. I get pain specifically in the two si joints when sitting or bending, but not for the rest of my back. Going into a posterior pelvic tilt helps with the pain as well. When I did those tests it did not cause me pain and I was wondering if you think that these stretches could still help with my type of si joint pain.

  25. If you don’t have a reaction from these tests, but it hurts to step down suddenly on a step, say, and to pull yourself up out of the seat of a car, and at random times with even slight twisting and bending, and there isn’t really any radiating pain – then what is the likely cause? I feel like I have developed a chronic weak, twinge-prone back that I’m masking as much as I can by keeping my abs tight… but this is twinginess that doesn’t completely go to that awful place where you’re walking crookedly from a pinched nerve (used to get those), and on the other hand doesn’t ever resolve anymore. It’s very frustrating! Thanks for any advice you can offer. My PT was stumped because I don’t have dramatic pain bending forward or backwards… I guess whatever I have was beyond his diagnostic abilities.

  26. This is the pain i am having! I had an incident where I jumped on an uneven trampoline at a party and it caused a back pain. I did see a clinic and they couldnt figureout the problem. They proscribed muscle relaxants. It helped to recover. But about 6months later (current day 7/21/18) it came back after sleeping wrong. There is a pain from my lower back but mainly the pain feels like Sciatic Nerve pinch. Whenever I motion my right leg the pain is where it stiffens the nerve or shoots pain down through the nerve. My foot becomes numb and cold. I can barely get up out of bed or stand for long periods of time. Sitting is even worst.

  27. I’m 22 years old and I have some lower back pain and I figured I got it while at the gym. I performed one of these exercises and it immediately helped so I will be trying the rest! Thank you guys! Thumbs up for sure 👍🏾

  28. Okay, so I had to come back to offer my sincere appreciation for this gem of a video presentation. I have been suffering from SI pain since 2015 I assume from my sedentary lifestyle. I used to shift my weight to one side causing the pain to manifest on my right side. Recent x-rays show inflammation in that area and now I finally know what my pain actually is. Seeking for relief I stumbled upon this video and tried the exercises and wow, I am just completely elated. I started feeling better immediately. Thank you, thank you, thank you. These three exercises are going to be the mainstay of my stretching routine for years to come.

  29. Thank you gentleman🙂Truly educational. I thought I had muscle issues, but it's SO joint for sure. I pulled my muscle connected to my ischium, on the left in 2001 and I've been compensating by sitting on my right leg for years. Incredible it took this long for it to finally give out. Although, I have done various forms of stretches over the years and self massage. (I'm a massage therapist). Thanks so much gentlemen, I will add your suggested stretches to my arsenal. Blessings #HumanRace

  30. Dang it. Thought this might be it however my pain goes from the hip through the hamstring past the knees into the calves and it is on both sides.
    Keep on hunting i guess.
    Still will try these exercises

  31. The exercise at 9:58 I tried that today at work, after being in pain for nearly 3 years. I heard a loud crack or pop, stood up and the pain was gone. Right now, though, it's kind of returned, but j think if I keep doing that exercise there's a good chance it might go forever. Thank you!

  32. I'm desperate and seen so many doctors…I can't afford this crap in so many ways. I've done chiropractic, neurologist…nerve ablation( no real help) and I sit so much because I hurt to much to stand and I try the pt…but i never seem to get improvement. No nerve pain. I've done the tests y'all show…gotten positive results for sacroiliac pain, but treatment doesn't help…of course i it's so expensive it's hard to do what I need to get better. Here's something I've been asking doctors without answer. I used to be able to do a back been no problem, now i stand and start to go back and can barely go back 30° it hurts SO MUCH WORSE and it feels like I'm hitting a door stopper…it just hits A BLOCK and there's no way i can go further back.

  33. I have problem when i sit . It not too much like abnormal thing .it is when i sit just direct below the hip
    Wat is this And solutions plz

  34. You guys are a life saver for real. Not only my own but others around me are safer because I was becoming s time home ready to explode from the years of constant pain and people around me not getting it and thinking I was over exaggerating it because I am young and look younger people think I shouldn’t be in that type of pain. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and and soul that you have helped me regain. I was becoming a heartless person who cared for no one.

  35. I enjoy the videos and they are very helpful in understanding and diagnosing the cause of some of my pain and alignment issues.
    My left SI has rotated forward causing my left leg to be extended and my left hip to move up and to the left causing my upper body to be tilted to the right.
    With the pain I believe it is an SI Joint issue, so could you tell me which exercises would help me ROTATE MY left Hip BACK in-place to correct my posture, get my left leg back in place and my upper body up straight again.
    thank you again for all the info…..

  36. Thank you so much!!!! I am a Hairdresser – my back pain is the WORST!!!! This explains everything to me … I will try the stretches, lets hope they work i am at my wits end with it … thank you 🙂

  37. I think i may have sj pain but i dont have any pain that goes down my leg at all. its just in the one specific spot could it still be sj pain?

  38. I've had SI pain for about a week now and it has been preventing me from doing my work as even sitting for more than 10 minutes produces pain. I just watched the video while massaging cbd balm on my back and then did two of the 3 exercises when finished and the pain when back at my desk has reduced by at least 40%. Thanks

  39. Question….is it a hip flexibility issue when one knee is more naturally lower than the other when performing that figure 4? One hip feels looser than the other…

  40. I went to urgent care for this pain it’s really really bad. I can’t get out of bed in the morning and am literally bedridden. At urgent care they gave me a torodol shot and prescribed me some torodol pills. They do help once they kick in and I can move around a tiny bit better but not nearly enough. I still cant walk without crutches is there anything else I can do for this pain? Should I call my primary doctor?

  41. My wife says I babble too much as well. But you guys are funny so I like the babbling, it gives your channel a good overall character. I enjoy the delivery of the info lol it's great

  42. What is the NAME of the stretch you did when you put your leg up on the stool? It was towards the end of the video.

  43. Your videos are great! People that don’t want the education along with the exercises can look up so other video. Knowing the why to the what is just as important, if not, more.

  44. @physicaltherapyvideo (Bob & Brad), is there a potential issue with doing an SI stretch on the wrong side? Or is it okay to be symmetrical about it by alternating and doing both sides equally? Would sense of pain vs relief indicate how that would be decided? Thanks for the great video!

  45. Wow, thanks!! Now I know what to call the horrible pain I've been having. And now I have something I can do about it!!!

  46. So much valuable information in all of your videos and yes I did subscribe haha , thanks guys I appreciate you making these videos and I love how you break it down for someone who isn't a medical professional to understand!!

  47. My pain seems to feel like it is right on the sacrum or just to one or the other side of it. Nothing radiates anywhere else.

  48. When I take a walk , It starts off fine , 1/4 of the way down the block I'll get pain on both hips or upper legs , Not high up on hips but lower down, Kind of gets worse as I go. I stop for a moment and it does not stop. I found out that when I climbed the stairs to post office, The pain stopped completely and immediately This happens a lot. Am I out of alignment or is it bursitis. Remember both sides same time and tender to touch high on leg in the area where my palms lays flat on both sides.
