A program of gradually increasing exercise can really help strengthen the joints and muscles because 1) it strengthens the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, thereby offloading the joints, and 2) contributes to weight loss thereby offloading joints. Jumping into running or heavy weightlifting without ramping up gradually can be really harmful though. The key is gradual. ...Read more

My Si joint/pubic symphysis keep coming out of alignment and I have to "pop" them back in. I need to get stronger but exercise hurts. Should I swim?

Work with a PT or Chiropractic Doc who is trained in SI joint manipulation and exercises for stability. Avoid high-impact activities and identify what specific movement triggers the instability. A SI joint belt may be helpful. ...Read more
