Men’s Health Part 2

Men’s Health Part 2

The second transition in a man’s life is into their middle years. Middle-age comes at different ages for each man, but usually occurs within their 40s.

At this point in life, a man is likely experiencing some changes in their body, due to lifestyle and genetics. They’ve experienced more bumps, bruises, crashes and falls, as well and may be noticing some pain around the hips, spine or joints, as a result of an active life in when they were younger. They might be less strong, or less powerful, or heavier, than when they were just a few years younger.

This is the second in our three-part series on specific spinal ailments. In our last series, you learned about Sciatica. In this installment, let’s talk about Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

Sacroiliac (say-kro-ill-ee-ak) sounds like a mouthful! Your sacroiliac joint is also referred to as your ‘SI’ by chiropractors and it’s the joint that connects your hips to the sacrum, or the triangular bone between your tailbone and lumbar spine. Your sacroiliac joint absorbs shock between your hips and your upper body. The SI joint itself doesn’t move very much, although small movements help to absorb shock as well as ease of movement with forward and backward bending. It is surrounded by several ligaments, which supports the joint.
