The Role of Prism Glass and Postural Restoration in Managing a Collegiate Baseball Player with Bilateral Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction: A Case Report

Authors: Robey JH, Boyle K

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJD) is a condition affecting 15-30% of patients with low back pain seen in outpatient clinics. Currently there is no well-defined standard of care. The purpose of this case report is to discuss the multidisciplinary management between an athletic trainer and an optometrist for an athlete with bilateral SIJ dysfunction and a visual midline shift syndrome. In this case report, the athlete demonstrated only minimal relief of symptoms following traditional muscle energy techniques, therapeutic exercises, and chiropractic manipulation. Intervention using prism glasses and postural restoration exercises, designed to optimize posture and correct his visual midline shift syndrome, led to complete resolution of his symptoms.
