Lower Back Pain?

15% to 30% of chronic low back pain can be attributed to the Si joint but without appropriate diagnostic evaluation and interpretation by a health provider trained to evaluate the SI joint, the source can be missed.

The sacroiliac (Si) joint is located in the pelvis. It transfers weight and forces between your upper body and legs. It is an essential component for energy transfer between the legs and the torso.

Pain from Si joint dysfunction can be felt anywhere in the lower back or spine, buttocks, pelvis, groin, or sometimes in the legs. Chronic Si joint pain symptoms can make it difficult to perform common daily tasks and can affect every aspect of a patient’s life.

Common Si Joint Pain Symptoms:

  1. Lower back pain (below L5)
  2. Sensation in lower extremity: pain, numbness, tingling, weakness
  3. Pelvis/buttock pain
  4. Hip/groin pain
  5. Feeling of leg instability (buckling, giving way)
  6. Disturbed sleep patterns due to pain
  7. Disturbed sitting patterns (unable to sit for long periods, sitting on one side)
  8. Pain going from sitting to standing

Schedule an appointment for lower back pain!

Schedule an Appointment with Neurosciences Spine Group to get your lower back pain treated. Discuss your history and pain experience along with a physical examination and tests to rule out other sources of pain, like lumbar spine pain and hip pain. We also perform these tests to identify (treat?) si joint dysfunction:

  3. Diagnostic SI joint injections of the SI joint

iFuse – Minimally invasive Si Joint Fusion

The iFuse Implant System was developed as a minimally invasive surgical option for patients who have failed non-surgical options. The iFuse triangle-shaped implant, available since 2009, is clinically proven to reduce pain and improve function and quality of life.

Minimally invasive SI joint surgery is the current medical standard of care for SI joint fusion to relieve sacroiliac joint pain.

  • Clinically proven to reduce pain
  • Minimally invasive
  • Triangle shape minimizes rotation
