Sacroiliac Syndrome can be extremely painful. For many people it tends to come on suddenly – for no apparent reason. At first they think it will just go away, but then the pain persists. Driving can be a chore. Walking is impossible. Some people give up, thinking ‘nothing can be done’, ‘I just need to learn to live with it’ or, worry that they will need a hip surgery.
And that’s sad. Because, more than just taking pain killers, often times something can be done – especially in the early stages. It starts with an accurate diagnosis.
Pain in the lower back and sacroiliac region can have a number of causes – the lower back, disc injuries, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome, inflamed or impinged sacroiliac joints, torn gluteal muscles and more.
The treatment will vary depending on your specific problem.
