Sacroiliac joint pain stems from a variety of conditions such as muscle imbalances and hyperpronation syndrome of the foot, as well as joint fixation (loss of motion within the joint complex itself). Sacroiliac joint pain is usually felt in the base of the spine in the lower back near the buttock. At times it mimics sciatica pain symptoms, with the radiating pain stopping above the knee. This particular joint can be irritated by too little movement (hypomobile) or too much movement (hypermobile).
With this condition careful attention must be paid to the surrounding soft tissue structures of the pelvis and lower back. Issues in these areas can prevent movement within the joint and cause nerve entrapments within the ligaments.
Traditional therapies include rest, ice, activity modification, and anti-inflammatory medications.
We will carefully assess your condition by performing a variety of orthopedic tests, postural assessment, ergonomic evaluations, and thorough soft tissue evaluations to decipher the origin of your pain.
After the initial inflammation has subsided, we will restore your normal function through spinal manipulation and a variety of soft tissue techniques which may include Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) Technique, Pettibon System, 3-D Mirror Image Adjusting, Fascial Manipulation, Trigger Point Therapy, or Transverse Friction Massage.
Rehabilitative and strengthening exercises will be given. Imaging such as x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound, EMG and MRI may be used to rule out any pathologic process.
