Having lower back pain? Pay attention.

The sacroiliac, or S-I joints, are what link your spinal column and pelvis. They serve to absorb damaging shock forces, stabilize the body and transmit weight to the lower limbs.

When the S-I joints are dysfunctional, it can cause back pain and even tension and pain in the jaw muscles and joints.

Luckily, chiropractic care has several ways of aiding pain caused by S-I dysfunction.

First, let’s identify two categories of S-I dysfunction.

Primary S-I dysfunction occurs suddenly due to trauma, slipping, lifting or sudden unexpected movements.

Secondary S-I dysfunction is caused by poor posture, which causes pressure to build up on the SI joints for an extended period of time.

The most important part of in correcting these dysfunctions is receiving the proper diagnosis. Dr. Adams is board certified as a chiropractic orthopedist to evaluate and diagnose these conditions. Postural evaluation, orthopedic and neurologic examinations and diagnostic testing are tools Dr. Adams may use when determining if the pain you are experiencing is actually coming from an S-I joint dysfunction.

Dr. Vrbka is specially certified in treating these conditions and can help you in the event that you are suffering from S-I joint dysfunction with the use of adjustments, recommendations for specific exercises that can help build muscle strength and joint ability and suggesting the use of stabilizing orthotics as well as devices to aid lower back and pelvic support.
