Sacral and buttock pain – sometimes referred to as sacroiliac joint dysfunction – is commonly under-diagnosed in many pain and spine clinics. In many cases, back pain does not specifically arise from conditions affecting the back. Instead, pain may originate from the hip or the sacroiliac joints (SI joints) – the joints in the pelvis that support the spine.
As in any case of a pain condition, proper diagnosis and a extensive experience in treating these pain conditions makes a large difference in ensuring that patients receive the proper treatment they need to improve mobility and function and decrease pain.
Sacral pain or sacroiliac pain – sacralgia or sacroiliitis – are different types of syndromes that affect the hip in the buttock area. Treatment options may vary from patient to patient. While hip pain may have some overlap with back pain conditions (impingement of the L3 Nerve root), it typically results in pain in the groin that radiates down into the front of the legs and knees. Pain may also worsen with crossing of the legs, getting in and out of a car, and going up or down stairs. In some cases, hip pain is associated with a small tendon tear within the hip. At Bay Area Chiropractic, our goal is to ensure that patients receive proper and accurate diagnoses so that the best and most efficient hip or buttock pain treatment plan can be created.
