Sacroiliac Joint Pain

The sacroiliac joint, commonly referred to as the SI joint, that’s actually going to be your little back dimples. So, if you put your thumb behind you there’s little back dimples, that’s actually what you’re palpating and feeling there. So, if that joint gets out of alignment or doesn’t move correctly, because a lot of your mobility between your hip and your low back actually occurs right there, you absolutely need to be getting that checked out. I have seen this become debilitating. It could also irritate the sciatic nerve, so with that sciatica is it coming from your low back, is it coming from the SI joint, is it coming from one of the gluteal muscles through there. SI joint and dysfunction is something I very, very commonly see here in the office. You even couple that with some of our injection medicine we can apply for it, wonderful results.
