Up to 85% of all people have lower back pain (LBP) at some point in their life. LBP is second only to the common cold as a reason for a physician visit. Despite all the attention to LBP, a major contributor is often overlooked as a pain generator. According to Dr. Matthew Gerlach, “up to 30% of low back symptoms are related to the Sacroiliac (SI) Joint. Yet, most physicians were never trained to consider the SI Joint when evaluating a patient for back pain.” Treatment may involve physical therapy and SI joint injections to manage the pain. “For patients who are no longer responding to conservative care, the iFuse Implant System offers a minimally invasive surgical option,” states Dr. Gerlach. The iFuse System is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FaLI0eLsvE
