Sacroiliac Joint Disease

Hours: Mon-Fri: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Call Us: (770) 787- 3550

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.

Sacroiliitis and SI Joint Pain Relief

The first step in relieving sacroiliitis or SI joint pain is receiving an accurate diagnosis. The sacrum and SI joints are often overlooked as a source of lower back or sciatica pain. Our spine specialists at Hanowell Spine Clinic are meticulous in identifying the source of pain in our patients. We can accurately diagnose sacroiliitis or SI joint disease and offer treatment to reduce pain and improve mobility. This can include SI joint injections and other treatments to relieve inflammation and stress on the sacroiliac joints.

If you have lower back, hip or buttock pain when sitting, standing or walking, you could have problems with your sacroiliac joints. Contact Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, locations to schedule an exam and consultation. We offer sacroiliac joint disease treatment and diagnosis, as well as many other spine and degenerative disease treatments.

Patient Reviews

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
