    Your sacroiliac joint is located in your pelvic region and is often a source of lower back pain.

    Sacroiliitis is a condition referring to the inflammation of the sacroiliac joint and can involve symptoms like pain, lack of mobility, and joint dysfunction.

    HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE SACROILIITIS?

    Sacroiliitis and its symptoms are caused by either too much or too little motion in the sacroiliac joint. You may experience a number of symptoms, including pain in the lower back, legs, hips, or buttocks. It is also common for our patients to experience a general stiffness in the hips and lower back, or a pain that worsens when sitting for long periods of time.

    Risk factors for sacroiliitis include:

    • spinal arthritis
    • disc degeneration
    • injuries. such as a car accident or fall
    • complications from pregnancy and childbirth

    WHAT IS THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR ME?

    In order to correctly diagnose you, your doctor will need to administer a diagnostic test called a sacroiliac joint block. Medication is injected into the joint, which temporarily relieves pain. If your pain is relieved, the diagnosis for sacroiliitis is typically certain.

    With a diagnosis, Alexander Bone and Spine Institute first recommends a more conservative approach to treatment, such as cortisone injections or physical therapy.

    If conservative methods fail to relieve your pain, you can consult with a specialist about the right kind of treatment for your condition.
