Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome- Gluteus Medius Muscle Strengthening Pistol Squats

With both sides of the pelvis level squat down on one leg sitting your butt back (like in a chair).

Keep the knee over the ankle and aligned with your hip and second toe while preventing it from moving past the toes as you squat. You also want to reach both arms out in front of you to keep balanced and bend your hips so your chest comes forward.

Your weight is on your entire foot as you come straight back up. Place the emphasis on pushing through the heel while squeezing your butt all the way back up. Repeat this for 10-15 repetitions doing 3 sets on each side.

Sacroiliac joint syndrome is a mechanical dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint causing pain and loss in mobility of the joint. It can present as pain in the low back, groin, buttock, thigh or posterior aspect of the sacroiliac joint area. It occurs when the sacroiliac joint ligaments are damaged or torn from trauma like a fall, motor vehicle accident, lifting, bending and repetitive strain or muscle imbalances.
