Depending on where the dysfunction resides in the pelvis it is very unusual not to have other symptoms such as low back pain, thoracic pain or knee pain. Terms such as sacroiliac dysfunction, pelvic shear, pelvic torsion, upslip and anterior rotation are pretty interchangeable and reflect terminology differences between physical therapists, physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors.
What most of us fail to realize is that the pelvis is actually two seperate bones and they can move relative to one another. A lot of back pain and pelvis pain is directly as a result of these two bones not working in unison with each other. Ideally one side should be a mirror image of the other. The muscles on each side should perform the same functions when we walk, are seated or running. If the muscles on one side, such as your gluts become weak, or your thigh muscles, the quadriceps becomes tight, these muscles can cause a rotation or slip in the pelvis bone. Once this happens it provides an instability resulting in pain and tightness and can affect other joints in the spine, hip and knee.
