36: The SI Joint – Part 2

In this episode, we continue our discussion of the sacroiliac joint (SI joint), touching on the hip flexor group of muscles and the transversus abdominis. We explain why these muscles are important in the healthy function of the joint and how we can draw more awareness into creating balance in them. Finally, we finish off by discussing twists and how twists may positively or negatively affect the SI joint.
