Show Your SI Joint Some Love With Healthy Pain Relief
Studies show that as much as 25% of all lower back pain can be attributed to the sacroiliac (SI) joint located in your pelvic region. SI joint pain occurs when movement in the pelvis is not the same on both sides. Something’s too tight, too loose, or a mix of both.
We at Taschler Spine & Rehab in Fairfax cannot emphasize enough that this is an issue that rarely goes away on its own. And the older you are, the more critical it is you seek proper healthcare to achieve pain relief and a robust SI joint.
What SI Joint Pain Tells You
We naturally lose muscle and bone mass as we age. Both happen faster in a location with chronic pain, like in the SI joint. This means you have weak muscles and your bones may be out of alignment to the point where you’re losing cartilage, too, leading to painful bone-on-bone contact.
Dangers of Ignoring SI Joint Pain
Your SI joint is meant to be strong and stable enough to support your entire upper body. Ignoring the pain can lead to hindered movement, loss of range of motion, poor posture, and lead to lumbar degeneration (the area at the base of your spine).
On top of all that upper body support is the network of nerve endings in and around the SI joint. Pain may stem from a nerve getting aggravated by improper motion, excess weight pressing down, or an injury that never healed correctly. Ignoring the pain can lead to permanent nerve damage and chronic pain.
