Diary of a Remedial Massage Student – Term 2 Week 10

This week we moved onto the hip and pelvis.  Pain in the hip and pelvis can cause serious discomfort. Biomechanical problems in other regions of the body can be the cause of these problems.

We learnt how to identify Sacroiliac joint dysfunction (which produces pain in a region similar to the referred pain pattern from the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles) by methodically identifying where the pain is reproduced – i.e. if by palpation of the muscle tissue, these muscles are more likely at fault. If pain is reproduced with tests that stress the sacroiliac joint, joint pathology is more likely the culprit.

Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy focuses on stretching and loosening the fascia so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely, restoring the client’s motion.  Understanding that the hip and pelvis has critical biomechanical and anatomical connections can assist with a thorough assessment of a client’s complaint.  The alignment of the pelvis alone can cause pain far and wide in the body.
