Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome

Improper movement of the pelvic bones (sacroiliac) can create an overload for the lumbar spine resulting in tissue fatigue. Without any apparent reason, low back pain can therefore occur when the tissues are at their maximum adaptive capacity. This type of low back pain is aggravated by extreme or prolonged positions (sitting or standing).

Hot zone

A hot zone is a section of a facility (sometimes an entire facility or even a city district) where there is a high risk of contamination by patients with an infectious disease. All individuals entering a hot zone must respect appropriate protective measures. By analogy, “cold zone” and “warm zone” are used to refer to areas where there is no infected individual or only individuals suspected of having an infection.
