About Lower Back Pain and Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
Up to 85% of all people have lower back pain (LBP) at some point in life1. The Sacroiliac (SI) joint is responsible for up to 25% of lower back pain2. New diagnostic and therapeutic procedures have recently become available which you may find of value.
Potential causes of SI joint problems include degenerative disease, history of trauma, failed back surgery, pregnancy / childbirth, and other unknown reasons. Recent clinical publications report that 43% of all post-lumbar and lumbosacral fusion patients may have SI joint dysfunction3.
SI joint 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 you better understand SI joint dysfunction and available treatment options including: non-operative therapy and new minimally invasive procedures.
