I have laxity in the SI joint so getting out of my vehicle (pilot) incorrectly can set it off. I used to actually pop the joint when it would get tight by getting into and then out of my DH's F150. Always felt good because it would get bound up. Now it's the opposite. When I had PT for it they encouraged glute strengthening and core strengthening. I do know that sitting off-kilter (one hip higher than the other) and random things will set it off.

Great information, thank you for sharing.

Jennifer I did some "research" a/k/a googling yesterday and a lot of the poses you mentioned were considered to be helpful.

I've tried a few KCM workouts. There is one weight one where she is obviously lifting too heavy and her form is bad. That put me off her workouts.

Yes, Joan, that's the book. A lot of fluff if you ask me but the exercises are valuable. It does discuss modifications for various situations.

I get instant relief from the lower extremities segment from James Knightís Gentle Yoga through Somatic Exploration (his first oneóitís a DVD-R), but would really like to work on prevention.

ETA: Diana, Annette Fletcher's Perfect in 10 Stretch is a lifesaver as well. Hope you feel better soon!

I have this one. Which section do you like? The lower body section? I think there are 5 different stretches on there.

Jennifer, thank you for posting that stretch sequence!

My SI joints bother me the most after yardwork and after putting up and taking down holiday decorations. I can pretty much count on hurting after those. I will try these stretches to see if I can prevent it!

Child's pose with arms extended in front of your head
Cobra, concentrating on NOT clenching glutes
Cat/cow, alternating EXHALE when contracting, INHALE when extending
Malasana (deep squat, doesn't matter what your foot position is, can elevate heels if needed)
Upavistha konasana (wide-legged pose, can bend forward or side to side, whatever feels best)
Baddha konasana (cobbler's pose) with spine straight or bent forward, whatever feels best.

Not in the prescribed routine but I usually do 30 seconds at least of downward dog after this because it feels good.

It sounds so simple but really made a difference for me. Haven't been to the chiropractor in years!
Thanks for sharing this. I've been struggling with some pain for a few months now. I've tried stretching, different exercises suggested by my chiropractor, and nothing seems to have helped much, until...... this last weekend I did a pretty strenuous hike. Not that long -- took a little more than an hour, but it was straight downhill, straight uphill pretty much. I was astounded when my pain was completely gone afterward. It started whispering to me in the evening of that day. I think I had to really use my quads on the downhill for sure and I'm wondering if that somehow helped. I've been trying to do some quad exercises daily since, but I will definitely add in this stretch routine.

I always do two: (1) Upper Body, Back & Hips and (2) Hips & Legs.

I'm going to try another of Annette's DVDs tonight (Save Your Lower Back) and see if that helps. When I got up this morning, I thought, "You know you're getting old when nearly your entire workout time is spent doing rehab exercises."

Please report back on this DVD. It's been in my Amazon cart for a while! TIA!

Will do! I'm embarrassed to admit that it's been on my shelf since 2013, and I don't recall ever trying it.
