A Tiger’s Tale… or rather its Sacrum!

SI-led som hoppar ur led, vridet bäcken, snett bäcken, med mera…med mera, är det sant eller falskt?

Själv tror jag på att SI-leden är en stabil led som vid vissa omständigheter (konsekvenser av frisättning av hormonet relaxin, frisätts vid graviditet) kan bli mera rörlig pga ökad elasticitet i ligamenten. En unge ska ju ut genom den lilla trånga bäckenkanalen…behöver all plats den kan få. Ganska logiskt. Men annars ska den vara en stabil led.

Sen då till alla er med ”sneda bäcken”, tror jag att ni får mer nytta av att justera era bäcken på egen hand genom hållningskorrigering…som att minska/öka svanken, jämn belastning på båda benen…ja, det finns många kroppsställningar som kan orsaka felbelastning. För att få vägledning i detta kan du söka sjukgymnast/fysioterapeut.

So was Tigers miracle sacrum ‘popping in’ cure that miraculous?

Well lets not sugar coat it, of course it bloody wasn’t, and I’m not the only one who thinks so, many online and on Twitter have voiced their concern and…

Hoppas inte det är samma siffror i den svenska fysioterapeutkåren…
