Dysfunction or the loss of mobility in the sacroiliac joint, the point where the spine connects with the pelvis, can lead to pain and discomfort in the legs and lower back. Dr. Behnam Salari, the leading orthopedic surgeon in New Jersey, provides comprehensive and personalized treatments to address the root cause of your sacroiliac pain, ensuring optimal results with minimal downtime.
What is Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome?
The sacroiliac joint contains two surfaces that must work together to produce motion. When the two parts of the joint don’t work in unison, you experience sacroiliac pain. Common symptoms of sacroiliac joint pain include radiating pain in the back, legs, and groin. The pain is usually dull but can intensify when you stand up after sitting down. You may experience pain and discomfort because of too much or too little movement.
Symptoms of Sacroiliac Pain:
- Mild to severe lower back pain
- Radiating pain into the hips, buttocks, and groin
- Pain may occur on one or both sides of the hips
- Hot, sharp, and stabbing pains on the back
- Numbness and tingling sensations on the lower back
- Reduced range of motion in the hips, groin, pelvis, and lower back
- Pain escalates while running, lying down, or climbing the stairs
- Sensations of instability on the pelvis
