The sacroiliac joint is between the sacrum and the pelvic bone. When this area is restricted it can cause lower back pain, tighten muscles, and put pressure on the sciatic nerve to produce leg pain. Lack of mobility usually forces patients to put extra strain on the hip and alter their stride. In turn, this can often produce hip pain, knee pain or bursitis in the hip.
Often low back and hip pain can be closely related. Our doctors are skilled in treating this area. In most cases, as the soft tissue tension is relieved surrounding the joint the problem resolves. The majority of patients notice a decrease in pain and an increased freedom of motion with just a few treatments.Back to Common Conditions
