If you’re suffering from unexplained pain in your groin, hip or buttock area it may be your sacroiliac (S/I) joint. The S/I joint is a semi-fixed joint that connects the sacrum with the pelvis. This joint is a strong, weight-bearing joint that ensures your body’s proper mobility and function.
Your S/I joint can be greatly compromised by surrounding structures such as ligaments, muscles and bones. If your S/I joint or surrounding joints are significantly injured or damaged, you can experience severe pain and discomfort.
Common symptoms of S/I joint pain may include:
- Pain in the groin area
- Sudden back pain
- Pain in the legs
- Inflammation of the legs
- Sciatic-type nerve pain
Our expert team of physicians and other medical professionals can identify the possible complications stemming from your knees and other load-bearing areas that can contribute to S/I joint problems. We want to make sure that you receive a personalized, comprehensive plan that will help you reduce or eliminate your pain.
For some S/I patients, realignment through chiropractic care, improvement of overall health of the joints, and working to reduce ligament laxity help significantly with overcoming joint pain.
Healing without surgery
It is important to seek help for your S/I pain before it becomes too intense. Timely interventions and a team who understands your personal health needs can provide effective relief for many issues related to pain you experience throughout your body.
