    #47 - Sometimes it IS the SIJ with Trish Wisbey-Roth

    In this episode with Trish Wisbey-Roth, we cover the latest evidence in the assessment of SIJ and pelvic pain and how using clusters can help improve our specificity and sensitivity. She then covers how treatments in this area require starting at a low and more specific level than is commonly prescribed, and that a common mistake is progressing too quickly with these patients.

Pain during exercise

I’d like to hear each guest give their interpretation of how much pain is appropriate to feel during the work load (whether it’s during exercise, or function). We are good at discussing biomechanics and differential diagnoses, but how do we guide our patients w pain interpretation? You can’t discuss dosing parameters without including the pain felt. Thank you.
