SI Joint pain and dysfunction
The sacroiliac (SI) joint is a source of pain in the lower back and buttocks in approximately 15% of the population. Diagnosing sacroiliac joint pain can oftentimes be difficult because the symptoms can be very similar to those of other causes of back pain.
How is SI joint pain diagnosed?
Dr. Ajiboye takes your current, past, and family medical histories into consideration for the diagnostic process. Then, he performs a thorough physical exam to assess your musculature, reflexes, and related function.
After the physical portion of the exam, Dr. Ajiboye may recommend further testing to confirm his suspected diagnosis. He may order X-rays, a CT scan, an MRI or diagnostic injections.
What treatments are available for SI joint pain?
Treatment modalities include medications, physical therapy, bracing, manual therapy, injections, and radiofrequency denervation. In rare instances where these conservative measures fail, Dr. Remi Ajiboye may recommend a minimally invasive SI joint fusion.
