Sacroiliac joint pain can be difficult to diagnose, because many of the symptoms that accompany problems in this joint are non-specific. Lower back pain, thigh pain, and tenderness in the hip are all symptoms of sacroiliac (SI) issues, but they could also signify other spinal injuries. Once doctors diagnose SI pain, however, there are treatments available.
In this video, you can learn about the causes of SI pain and the difficulties in diagnosing it. You will hear about how doctors determine whether the SI joint is the cause of the pain and what they can do to alleviate your symptoms. You will also get advice about strengthening the muscles around the SI joint to relieve pressure on the spine.
