What Is Sacroiliac Joint Pain & What You Can Do About It

What Is Sacroiliac Joint Pain & What You Can Do About It

Sacroiliac joint pain is one of THE most common complaints we deal with in our practice.

And they will NOT simply vanish on their own.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is a condition where the joints that connect the sacrum to the pelvis move too much (hypermobility) or too little (hypomobility).

Some causes of SI joint pain include pregnancy/childbirth, weak muscles in the pelvis or lower back, arthritis, injury, scoliosis, a difference between each leg’s length, or a previous lower back surgery.

It may be time to come see us if you are experiencing any of the following Sacroiliac Joint pain and symptoms:

  • Dull pain in low back
  • Pain that radiates into the buttocks and thigh
  • Pain across the SI joint
  • Pain at the end ranges of motion or with sitting
  • Poor stability in the lower back and pelvic region upon sitting/standing, or exercising
  • Hypermobility syndrome

How We Diagnose & Treat SI Joint Dysfunction

Within just a few short sessions, we can remove your pain and stiffness.

We can pinpoint the true cause of your SI pain—often in less than 20 minutes—so you finally have concrete answers about the source of your SI joint pain.

Our treatment will help you avoid painful and risky surgery. Surgery that, in far too many cases, does nothing to provide relief.

When getting treatment for your SI Joint, we will determine whether your condition is caused by hypermobility or hypomobility.

If the condition is caused by hypermobility of the joint, your physical therapist will focus on stability exercises to increase the stability of the joint.

If the condition is caused by hypomobility of the joint, we may perform manual therapy and spinal manipulation to mobilize the joint.

We will create a personalized plan for you that includes stretching, strengthening, and aerobic exercises to reduce stiffness.

Our Approach to Treating SI Joint Dysfunction

Our Approach to Treating SI Joint Dysfunction

  • The Gray Method™ An approach invented by our owner, Dr. Scott Gray. The premise behind everything focuses on pinpointing the original CAUSE of your injury, pain, or stiffness, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

  • Dry Needling Dry needling is an advanced technique that uses very small needles to puncture the skin around stiff muscles. This treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate pain, muscle tension, stiffness, and muscle spasms.

  • Myofascial Release- A hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure and massage to the myofascial connective tissues. Your therapist will gently massage the myofascia and feel for stiff or tightened areas to eliminate pain and restore motion.

  • Stability Exercises- Your stability is like a muscle that you can make stronger to increase the stability of your joints. These exercises will bring not only relief to your SI joint but permanently keep the pain from coming back.

  • Spinal Manipulation & Traction- A hands-on manual therapy technique that combines moving and jolting joints, massage, exercise, and physical therapy. It helps relieve pressure on the joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function.

  • Functional Mobility & Strengthening- An approach that helps increase your overall mobility and strength to ensure your pain stays away long after rehab. Increased strength & mobility will help you heal your current pain or injury, prevent future injuries, improve your posture, prevent chronic diseases, and protect bone health.
