Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy approach to assessment and treatment of derangement of the sacro-iliac joint

Stuart John Horton and Anja Franz

This case report describes the clinical reasoning and management of the sacroiliac joint, utilising the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). A patient with a 2 year history of buttock and thigh pain demonstrates a directional preference for repeated anterior SIJ rotation. The MDT approach is discussed and is an ideal method for emphasising the patients involvement in managing their own back problem.
