SI Joint Pain Dysfunction |Try Vancouver Chiropractor
Dr. Michael Horowitz
The sacroiliac joint lies next to the bottom of the spine, below the lumbar spine and above the tailbone (coccyx). It is a strong, weightbearing synovial joint with irregular elevations and depressions that produce interlocking of the two bones.
SI Joint pain often results from a faulty spinal (pelvic) mechanics due to the accumulation of stress & tension to the spine (pelvis). This is best treated with a chiropractor assessment accompanied by hands-on treatment by getting to the source of the problem and allowing for proper healing.
Low back pain may be caused by sacroiliitis, or an inflammation of the sacroiliac joint or SI joint. With sacroiliitis, the individual may experience pain in the low back, buttocks, thighs, and experience a rheumatic condition, causing inflammation in the eyes or psoriasis. Another related condition of the sacroiliac joint is sacroiliac joint dysfunction (also known as SI joint dysfunction). While SI joint dysfunction may cause low back and leg pain from inflammation, some believe sacroiliac joint dysfunction differs from sacroiliitis. The origin of the dysfunction is complication with the normal movement of the sacroiliac joints while sacroilitis (literally inflammation of the sacroiliac joint) is usually caused by one of the connective tissue diseases (like ankylosing spondylitis or psoriasis).
