Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can cause strong pain in the lower back and legs. If left untreated, the condition can worsen, and of course, that leads to an even higher level of pain and discomfort. Thankfully, The Spine Center can help. Dr. Siddiqui uses minimally invasive procedures for fast, effective treatment so you can once again enjoy a life without back pain.
What is Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction?
Sacroiliac joins are located at the bottom of your back. There’s one joint on each side of the spine. These joints allow for twisting whenever you move your legs. Sometimes, these joints can become either too rigid or too loose. Both types of sacroiliac joint dysfunction are equally dangerous, and they can cause pain as well as damage to surrounding ligaments and muscles.
Symptoms of Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
Your back and leg pain could be caused by any number of conditions. That’s why it’s important to schedule an appointment with The Spine Center so Dr. Siddiqui can examine you to determine the exact pain source. However, there are some signs and symptoms of sacroiliac joint dysfunction that you can look for:
- Pain to the left or right of your lower back
- Pain throughout the buttocks and legs
- Restricted movement
- Lower back stiffness
- Groin pain
