Pain Free Friday Sep. 9 – Is Your SI joint causing your back pain?

Hi, this is Dr. Brag from the Spine and Orthopedic Pain Center in Norfolk Virginia with a tip for a Pain Free Friday. We’re gonna talk about briefly today, pain in the SAC IC joint. The diagnosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction is often overlooked because you can’t look at an x-ray and determine that this is the pain generator, but how do you know if you have SI joint pain? People often experience pain in the lower back or back of the hips and the pain could be present in your groin or in your thighs. This pain is typically worse with standing and walking and improved with lying down. Sometimes inflammation in the SI joint can cause stiffness and burning sensation in the pelvis. So if you’re having these symptoms, call your back doctor to determine if you have SI joint inflammation, and most of the time, this can be treated without surgery.
