Sacroiliac joint pain originates from the sacroiliac joints. It is often described as a deep, dull ache located in the lower back, buttocks or groin. The pain may radiate down one or both legs, causing additional discomfort.

The sacroiliac (SI) joints are located where the sacrum, the triangular bone at the base of the spine, connects to the ilia, the two large bones of the pelvis. These joints, though minimally mobile, play a critical role in transferring weight and force during movement and maintaining stability and balance.

Causes of Sacroiliac Joint Pain

There are several causes of the pain, including:

1) Arthritis: Osteoarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis are common types of arthritis that can affect.
2) Trauma: Injuries to the lower back or pelvis, such as falls, accidents or sports injuries.
3) Pregnancy: During pregnancy, the hormones released can relax the ligaments in the pelvis, which can lead to instability and pain.
4) Repetitive stress: Activities that involve repetitive movements, such as running, jumping or lifting heavy objects.
5) Spinal conditions: Conditions such as scoliosis and leg length discrepancy can put stress on the sacroiliac joints and cause pain.

Symptoms of Sacroiliac Joint Pain

1) Low back pain: This is the most common symptom, often described as a sharp, stabbing pain or a dull ache in the lower back and buttocks.
2) Pain spreading down the leg: The pain may travel down the back of the thigh and into the leg, mimicking sciatica.
3) Stiffness: Can be accompanied by stiffness in the lower back and hips, making it difficult to move comfortably.
4) Pain with specific movements: Activities that involve twisting, bending or climbing stairs can exacerbate the pain.
5) Pain when standing or sitting for long periods: Remaining in one position for too long can put additional stress on the joints and increase pain.

Old Treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Pain

a. Medications: Commonly prescribed pain medications offered temporary relief but failed to address the root cause of the pain.
b. Physical Therapy: While beneficial for some, physical therapy’s success varied, and long-term results were often inconsistent.
c. Heat and ice therapy: Applying heat packs or ice packs to the affected area provided temporary pain relief.
d. Surgery: In severe cases, surgery was sometimes performed to fuse the SI joint. However, this is a major surgery with a long recovery time and significant risks, including nerve damage and infection.

Adavance Prolotherapy Treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Prolotherapy Treatment can help those patients who suffers from sacroiliac pain. It is a nonsurgical treatment that involves injecting a solution, typically dextrose or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), into the injured area. This solution triggers an inflammatory response, which in turn promotes the growth of new tissue and strengthens the weakened ligaments surrounding the SI joint.
With its natural healing approach, minimal invasiveness and targeted effectiveness, Prolotherapy offers a compelling alternative to traditional treatments.

Shockwave Treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Shockwave therapy is also a non-invasive treatment option for SIJ pain. It involves the application of high-energy sound waves to the affected area. These sound waves create micro-trauma, which promotes healing and pain relief.

If you are considering shockwave treatment, then consult with a doctor to see if it is right for you.

Benefits of Prolotherapy and Shockwave Treatment

Prolotherapy and Shockwave Treatment offer a number of benefits,

1. They are non-invasive and do not require surgery or injections.
2. They are relatively painless.
3. Effective in reducing pain and inflammation.
4. They can help to accelerate healing.
5. Safe and well-tolerated by most patients.
