Sacroiliac Pain


Presentation

  • CONCLUSION: The present study suggests the sacroiliac joint is an uncommon but real source of low back pain. The accuracy of some of the presumed "sacroiliac pain provocations tests" is questioned.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Sacroiliac (SI) region pain is a common clinical presentation and is often due to pathology involving the SI joints, usually of inflammatory, infective, neoplastic, or post-traumatic etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Furthermore, no physical signs of discogenic aetiology should be present.[pijn.com]
  • If the cause of pain is inflammatory in origin, stiffness is often present as well. What is the Treatment for SI Pain? Physical therapy can be very helpful in resolving SI pain .[medisavvy.com]
  • […] may be present.[aaomed.org]
Enthesopathy
  • The causes of SI joint pain can be subdivided into intra-articular (infection, arthritis, malignancy) and extra-articular (enthesopathy, fractures, ligament injury and myofascial). However, frequently, no specific aetiology can be demonstrated.[pijn.com]
Impulsivity
  • Significant differences between PTs were found in the impulse (force x time) for the vertical and lateral force components (P CONCLUSIONS: Recording force and time events indicates that variation in examination technique within and between PTs may influence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Excitement
  • I was super excited to see a book come out that puts it all at my fingertips. I highly recommend this method and book for clinicians to help deal with that ever bothersome SI joint. Thank You Deb for a great resource.[optp.com]
Forgetful
  • Don't forget the abdominal contents, including the lower digestive tract, and the urogenital system. The pelvic girdle is a great adaptor. When something is stressed in the pelvis or lumbar spine, the SI will twist, misalign and adapt.[dynamicchiropractic.com]

Workup

  • Testing for hypothyroidism , cortisol abnormalities, or other metabolic or endocrine imbalances may be appropriate as part of the workup for a patient with depression.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • Possible SIJ pain requires a thorough evaluation and treatment option.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Non-somatic Treatment Psychological Treatment Depression Treatment Cognitive-Behavioural Treatment Rehabilitation Treatment Somatic Treatment Pharmacological treatment: Non-steroid Anti-inflammatories (short period) Other Treatments Manual/Musculoskeletal[pijn.com]
  • SI Joint DYSFUNCTION Treatment Initial conservative treatment options for the SI joint typically involve physical therapy, medication and injection management.[spinemd.com]
  • Treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Pain Treatment is often dependent on the duration and severity of the pain and dysfunction.[anagenesisspine.com]

Prognosis

  • From Source: iStock What is the prognosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction? The prognosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction varies depending on the cause of the dysfunction.[medicinenet.com]
  • What is Your Prognosis for Sacroiliac Joint Pain? The success of sacroiliac joint pain treatment via pelvic joint re-alignment and subsequent dynamic stabilisation via a deep abdominal and hip core stability control programs is very good.[physioworks.com.au]

Etiology

  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Previous studies have implicated the sacroliac joint as a potential etiology of back and leg pain, but none has tested double anesthetic blocks in a prospective fashion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Sacroiliac (SI) region pain is a common clinical presentation and is often due to pathology involving the SI joints, usually of inflammatory, infective, neoplastic, or post-traumatic etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In addition, NSAIDs are the first line treatment of sacroilitis with inflammatory etiologies such as ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and undifferentiated spondyloarthritis.[link.springer.com]

Prevention

  • Prevention Methods One of the best ways to handle your sacroiliac joint pain is through prevention entirely.[chronicbodypain.net]
  • In this article we go over some of the most important factors that results in SI pain , as well as ways to prevent and help manage the pain.[medisavvy.com]
  • Resting the joint and discontinuing activities that cause pain, until the inflammation and pain subsides will help prevent the development of chronic pain.[stretchcoach.com]
  • These treatments can minimize the SI joint pain and prevent destruction of the joints.[medicinenet.com]
  • Issues in these areas can prevent movement within the joint and cause nerve entrapments within the ligaments. Traditional therapies include rest, ice, activity modification, and anti-inflammatory medications.[drwaynewinnick.com]
