Making sure the mobility of your SI joint is adequate can certainly help to reduce symptoms of pain that you may experience in your low back, hips, gluteals, and even mildly radiating down your leg. These relatively crude self tests can certainly highlight a side that might be too rigid or ‘stuck,’ performing the exercises below can make a big difference!
