The sacroiliac joints are located at the bottom of the spine and connect the sacrum to the pelvis. These joints provide very little movement and act as shock absorbers for the spine.
Painful dysfunction of these joints is a common cause of low back pain that is often misdiagnosed. If the sacroiliac joints move too much they’re said to be hypermobile. This can occur during pregnancy or when the supporting ligaments are damaged. If the sacroiliac joints move too little they’re said to be hypomobile. This can occur as a result of degenerative joint disease and arthritis.
The pain from sacroiliac joint dysfunction is similar to that of an intervertebral disc injury and therefore is commonly misdiagnosed. Fortunately, the Chiropractors at Lakeside Chiropractic are trained in a variety of techniques to help accurately diagnose and treat the source of your lower back pain.
