About Lower Back Pain And The Sacroiliac Joint
Up to 85% of all people have lower back pain (LBP) at some point in life.1 The Sacroiliac (SI) Joint can be responsible for up to 25% of lower back pain but is often never evaluated because most physicians are never trained to look for it as pain generator.
Potential causes of SI joint problems include degenerative disease, history of trauma, pregnancy/ childbirth, and other unknown reasons. Recent studies have discovered that 75% of all post-lumbar surgery patients may have SI Joint dysfunction.2
Symptoms often limit self-supporting daily activities, work, social and recreational pursuits. Lack of activity can lead to obesity, depression and general physical deterioration.
This educational event will help patients understand their disease and how to manage their condition. SI Joint patients will understand treatment options including: non-operative therapy, traditional surgery and a new minimally invasive technology.
