Patients reporting lower back pain, groin pain, or pain originating from the buttocks into the thigh may have a condition called sacroiliitis. Characterized as inflammation of one or both of the sacroiliac joints, sacroiliitis is actually a common form of spondylosis, which is arthritis of the spine. Located directly between the sacrum and the ring-like pelvis, the body’s two sacroiliac joints act as shock absorbers between the body and legs. The most common causes of sacroiliac joint inflammation include injuries from a car accident, contact sports, older age, pregnancy, and failed back surgeries. Patients in Kinnelon, NJ may be unknowingly suffering from this disease.
This condition can potentially cause serious limitations of movement as well as pain while sitting. When the sacroiliac joints become inflamed, the patient may experience stabbing pain from performing the simplest of tasks such as standing up. Since many of the symptoms of sacroiliac joint inflammation mimic symptoms of lower back disease, this diagnosis can easily be missed by non-medical professionals or medical professionals who do not specialize in back-related disease and nerve pain.
For patients living in Kinnelon, NJ potentially suffering from sacroiliitis, Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics can offer the correct diagnosis along with several effective treatments because of their top ranked brain and spine neurosurgeons along with their physiatrists, pain management specialists and physical therapists.
