This condition can be difficult to diagnose since the SI joints are so close to the hip bones and low back, and can be mistaken for a herniated or bulging disc.

The Hesch Method is a form of Manual Therapy, a hands-on manipulation of joints and other body structures, that can eliminate SIJD.  This therapy is unique in that it is a BRIEF treatment in which even complex patterns of neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction can be pinpointed promptly and corrected within an average of three visits.

The Hesch Method, a unique set of Orthopedic Manual Therapy, represents a new approach to evaluation and treatment of back pain, in which spring tests are enhanced to a kinesthetic skill known as “Springing with AwarenessTM”.  The practitioner thoroughly assesses the lumbopelvic structure in all planes of the body.  A viscoelastic creep and reflexogenic model of treatment can rapidly restore normal function.   This therapy is simple, very effective, and easy to learn.

 The Hesch Method Continued Education class is available for the first time on the East Coast on May 18 and 19 in Shrewsbury, NJ.  Health care practitioners who use hands-on care, such as Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Pilates Instructors, Personal Trainers, and Doctors of Osteopathy typically take the class.  This course teaches manual therapy skills that are readily accessible and immediately applicable.
