A Step-By-Step Guide

As both a physical therapist and a person with a history of sacroiliac dysfunction (SD), I highly recommend this book. Dr. Riczo’s method for treating SD is easy to understand and provides step by step guidance. I certainly wish I had access to this book when I was dealing with my own sacroiliac pain in pregnancy and postpartum.

Excellent resource

I had the pleasure of attending the course that goes with this book and have used this method since. I was super excited to see a book come out that puts it all at my fingertips. I highly recommend this method and book for clinicians to help deal with that ever bothersome SI joint. Thank You Deb for a great resource.

A Comprehensive Guide for the Patient Experiencing Sacroiliac Pain

Over the past 15 years as a CRRN, I have witnessed the outstanding results of specific physical therapy exercise routines directed to alleviate symptoms related to a particular dysfunction. After having the opportunity to review Dr. Riczo’ s recent book on sacroiliac pain, I now have a better working knowledge and ability to understand the effects of treatment for sacroiliac dysfunction and the utilization of Dr. Riczo’ s recommended method. The anatomical illustrations along with explanations and step by step guide to the various stretches and exercises were easy to understand and foster the motivation to improve the quality of one’s life. I highly recommend this book to both healthcare professionals and their patients who are suffering from sacroiliac pain.

Easy to read, but extremely comprehensive

This is a well-designed book and an easy read. You can almost hear Dr. Deb Riczo’s calm and encouraging voice through the pages. I believe this is an excellent tool for post-partum mothers who cannot necessarily find the time to come to physical therapy appointments regularly. This book is also an excellent resource for patients with chronic pain, as the language in the book is upbeat and the over-arching theme is about choosing fitness for life. It offers many variations of the exercises, which makes adherence much easier. The exercise log in the back of the book helps with organization. I will definitely recommend this book to patients with sacroiliac dysfunction.

This book is for lay people who want to heal and professionals who lack this information.

This book provides valuable information to identify whether or not you have a sacroiliac dysfunction (SD) and gives step by step exercises with clear pictures and illustrations for guidance on how to successfully treat yourself. It is backed by years of evaluation and treatment experience as well as medical science. The section on anatomy is a great review and specific to SD for professionals and people experiencing SD. Dr. Riczo presents on this topic nationally, influencing young and not so young professionals on this little talked about topic. It is easy to use and yet, full of information.
