The “S.I.” or sacroiliac joint is an area in the lower back that can get painful or feel “pinched.”
There are numerous causes for pain in this area which can occur frequently in Jiu-Jitsu from playing a bottom guard position and getting stacked or compressed.
This area can also get irritated and painful from other activities such as improper lifting mechanics or prolonged sitting.
I share two variations that can be very useful and effective. The first one is using a bed or treatment table. The second variation is excellent when a table is not available and you are getting loosened up at a Jiu-Jitsu gym prior to training.
Give these a try, but remember that core and hip stability is also important in preventing the recurrence of symptoms, so check out some of the other videos to get ideas on strengthening.
