How to Get the Right Diagnosis for your SI Joint Pain.

The intense pain in your lower back could be caused by a number of things. Does the pain originate at your hip, spine, SI joint … or all three?
The right diagnosis will lead you to the right treatment.

Studies show that the SI Joint is the cause of pain in 15 – 30% of patients with chronic low back pain.

What Is Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction?

The sacroiliac joints (SI) are the foundation of the spine, located at the junctions of the sacrum and ilium on each side. These complex joints, composed of systems of ligaments and multiplanar joint surfaces, transmit the forces exerted through the spine from the upper body to the legs. The SI joint is designed to absorb shock forces and is naturally constrained to only limited movement. Instability in the SI joint is a major pain generator in some patients.

Causes of SI Joint Instability and Pain

  • Prior injury or accident
  • Postpartum pelvic girdle pain
  • Ligamentous loosening due to pregnancy
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Low back instability or prior low back surgery
