Find Relief from Sacroiliac Joint Pain in Fort Myers, Florida

Sacroiliac joint pain, sometime referred to as SI Pain, is from a dysfunction in the joint. It can sometimes cause lower back or leg pain. It can be difficult to tell the difference if leg pain is source rooted at the SI joint or caused by a herniated disc because they feel very similar.

SI Pain is responsible for roughly 30% of all back pain complaints.

The sacroiliac connects the hip bones to the sacrum. The primary function of the sacroiliac joints is to act as a shock absorber between the upper body and the pelvis.

This joint has very little motion. Small movements help with shock absorption of forward/backward bending. The joint is reinforced by ligaments surrounding it. This network of soft tissues provides support and assists in balancing out pressure.

Problems form when there is either too little or too much movement in the SI joint.

Hypermobility (too much movement) can cause the pelvis to feel unstable and lead to pain. It is felt in the back, hip and groin area.

Hypomobility (too little movement) can cause pain, muscle tension, and an inability to move freely. Pain is felt on one side of the back and glutes and may run down the leg.

Left untreated they cause inflammation and pain as well as ongoing problems which can lead to degeneration and chronic conditions.

Chiropractic care is a safe non invasive way to treat sacroiliac joint pain.

Causes may include:

  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Altered function of knee, hip, or leg
  • Pregnancy
  • Injury or accident
