Sacro-iliac joint anatomy and pathology
Sacroiliac Joint Doctor
The sacroiliac joint is situated inside the pelvis, between the tailbone (sacrum) and the pelvis bones (ilia). It is predisposed to degenerative issues (osteoarthritis of the sacroiliac joint), inflammatory conditions (ankylosing spondylitis and others), or trauma.
The most common traumatic events for the sacroiliac joint complex are labor and delivery, car accidents, or the aftermath of lumbar surgical fusion.
Traditionally, pain from the sacroiliac joint is diagnosed and sometimes treated with injections into the joint. Sacroiliac joint injury or degeneration can also be treated with regenerative techniques, such as proliferative therapy (prolotherapy), platelet-rich plasma and stem cell injections.
