Low back pain is one of the ten most common causes of disability, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction is one of the most common causes of it.
This study aimed to find if there is any association between hip adductor tightness with sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
Methods. Sixty people who had attended our Sports Medicine Clinic took part in this study (30 in each group). The case group contains patients who had sacroiliac joint dysfunction based on physical examination, and the control group was patients with similar characteristics who attended for reasons other than spinal or lower limb problems. A fixed sports medicine specialist assessed both groups' tenderness and tightness of adductor muscles.
The level of tenderness (Kendall Tau correlation coefficient equal to 0.440 and P<0.001) and tightness (Kendall Tow correlation coefficient equal to 0.479 and P <0.001) of the hip adductor muscles in the case group were significantly higher. More people in the case group reported hip adductor muscle pain than the control group (P <0.001).
This study showed more hip adductor muscle involvement in people suffering from sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
