I’ve had SI joint dysfunction since I was about 16 from poor squatting technique in high school football and brain dead coaches. Been working on it since then and have just never got anywhere. 25 now.I have hypermobility in some ways and severe hypomobility in others. I can bend over and palm the ground without bending my knees. My spine can easily curve so that the top is at a 90 degree angle from the bottom. My squat depth and technique is loose as anybody I know. I can hold a third world squat perpetually with no pain or discomfort.I can’t sit indian style. I have to hold both hips up and my back has to curl for my hips to even get that low. I can barely get my left foot on my right knee in order to sit cross legged. My hip locks so that my knee is 45 degrees relative to the vertical.I’ve tried so many things over the years that my knees have gotten bad. Stretches meant for the hip fail due to the extreme tightness of my hips and end up just torquing everything else on my legs.Anybody have any advice to work through this?

Sounds like you need to have the placement of bones in your hip joint looked at.
Have you seen anyone about this?

02/10/2014 at 1:39 am #74092Jeremy TymesParticipantI went to an Orthopedic surgeon but all I got was the diagnosis of SI joint dysfunction and a ridiculous bill along with suggestions for more bills at a therapist. Couldn’t afford.As to the videos, I can’t get into most of those positions. IE the leg up on the table with the ankle and knee both touching. I can’t get anywhere near that. My ankle touches and my leg locks at 45 degrees to the table. Trying to force it just hurts my knees and ankles and my hip doesn’t feel a thing.The ballerina pose I can and it seems to be doing something. But it sort of feels like mowing a lawn with scissors. Maybe I just have to do this a few times a day for some weeks until it opens a little.Thanks!
