The sacroiliac joints connect the sacrum to the pelvis, absorbing shock from the spine. The sacroiliac (SI) joints only provide limited movement, but they may be affected with similar diseases to other joints. Sacroiliitis and osteoarthritis can impact the SI joints, causing inflammation and lower back or hip pain. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic are sacrum and SI joint specialists and offer sacroiliac joint disease treatment to give patients relief from this chronic pain condition.
The SI joints are used whenever you shift weight, walk, sit and stand. Many people do not even realize their sacroiliac joints exist until they begin experiencing pain caused from sacroiliac joint disease. SI joint problems are often misdiagnosed. The symptoms are pain in the lower back, hip or legs, which can indicate many different types of spinal or lumbar back conditions. Sacroiliitis or degenerative joint disease is a common cause of SI joint pain that can impact your mobility and quality of life.
