Sacroiliac Joint Function

Have you ever felt an unexplained pain in your lower back when you try to cross one leg over the other? If so, your sacroiliac joint (SI joint) may be acting up. The sacroiliac joint is the joint located in the pelvis, linking the iliac bone (pelvis) to the sacrum (lowest part of the spine above the tailbone). It is an essential component for shock absorption to prevent impact forces during walking from reaching the spine. If your SI joint is not functioning properly, you may feel chronic pain in your lower back, buttocks, or in the legs. When you do, Dr. Kent Carlomagno of Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center can provide you with relief.

The SI joint transfers weight and forces between your upper body and legs. Like any other joint in the body, it can degenerate or its support ligaments can become loose or injured. If this happens to you, chronic SI joint pain can make it difficult to perform daily activities, and can only get worse over time if left untreated. Chronic nerve irritation can affect the adjacent organs involved in sexual function and elimination.

If you are suffering from disturbed sleep patterns, hip/groin pain or pelvic pain, please give us a call.
