Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Non-surgical Treatments for Pain in the Lower Back & Legs

The sacroiliac (SI) joints are the connecting mechanism for your pelvic bone and spine. There are two of them in total located on either side of sacrum bone. These are strong, powerful joints that provide stability and support for the entire spine. While they are very durable, they can be susceptible to injury just like any other part of the body.

SI joint dysfunction occurs when these joints are injured. Damaged SI joints can cause pain in the lower back and radiating pain down the legs. This condition is more common in women and it can make both sitting and standing difficult.

Symptoms of SI joint dysfunction include:

  • Pain in the lower back
  • Radiating pain in the legs
  • Pain in the hip and groin area
  • Pain that flares up when sitting, standing, or bending

If you are experiencing pain in the lower back or legs, contact National Spine & Pain Centers today to schedule an appointment with a seasoned pain treatment specialist.
