The Cause of Back Pain that Many Surgeons Overlook

si joint pain and back pain from sacroiliac joint injury treat naturally

Sacroiliac joint pain NYC. The sacroiliac joint is often the cause of most back pain. Chiropractors focus more attention on the role that the sacroiliac joint plays in relation to the spine, versus medical doctors who tend to overlook it as a cause of back pain. When treating back pain with surgical methods, most surgeons focus only on the spine.

According to a recent CNN article about sacroiliac joint dysfunction: "Studies have found that 20 to 25% of all chronic lower back pain comes not from the spine but from the sacroiliac, or SI, joint, which bears and transfers weight and movement from your upper body to your legs."

The sacroiliac joints are located at the hip area at either side of the spine, which connect the lower spine to the pelvis and provide shock absorption to prevent spinal injury by taking in and evenly distributing the impact forces of lower body motion and upper body weight. Healthy sacroiliac joints allow for a small amount of movement at the joint. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction originates when normal function is disrupted, causing the joint to either become hypermobile or experience restricted mobility. When this happens, nerves can become entrapped in the sacroiliac joint and cause lower back pain as well as sciatica.

Sharp lower back pain can also occur because of degeneration of the sacroiliac joint ligaments, which causes abnormal friction and progressive tissue damage. This condition is oftentimes mistakenly diagnosed as degenerative disc disease because the symptoms are similar – shooting pains that can travel from the lower back down the buttock and leg.
