What is Sacroiliitis?

Sacroiliitis is a subcategory within the spine's inflammatory conditions set, known as spondyloarthropathy. Sacroiliitis is the inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, which is situated on either side of the lower spine (sacrum), linking it to the pelvic girdle "wings" (iliac crest). Sacroiliitis is a common cause of lower back pain, leg and thigh pain, pain in one or both buttocks, and sacroiliac pain. The intensity of the pain varies from mild to debilitating and may worsen if you stand for long periods. 

Causes of Sacroiliitis

You may find yourself suffering from sacroiliitis for one of several reasons, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pregnancy
  • Staph bacterial infection
  • Injury or trauma, for example, during an auto accident.
  • Aging
  • Obesity

Dr. Wilson at Kosak Chiropractic, serving the Fairfield, CA community, will examine you thoroughly to determine whether you are suffering from sacroiliitis or another underlying condition to determine the most effective method of treatment uniquely tailored to your individual needs. 

Chiropractic Treatments for Sacroiliitis

Chiropractic care focuses on the spinal column and the accompanying musculoskeletal system, activating the system's natural healing systems. Thus, it makes sense that certain types of chiropractic will be suitable for the treatment and management of sacroiliitis, including:

  • There is chiropractic adjustment and spinal manipulation, also known as high velocity; low amplitude (HVLA) thrust.
  • Gentler spinal mobilizations, using low velocity, low amplitude thrusts. 
  • Massage therapy relieves muscle tension and spasms, relieving the strain on your sacroiliac joints.
  • Physiological therapeutic modalities such as electrical stimulation to reduce inflammation
  • Therapeutic exercise focusing on strengthening your back muscles
  • Ice pack cryotherapy
  • Lifestyle and nutritional counseling

The benefits of using chiropractic methods to treat your sacroiliitis include pain relief without OTC medications or steroidal injections. Unfortunately, the medication also tends to become ineffective for chronic sacroiliitis sufferers. You can also avoid surgery, which is the last resort for this condition. And for pregnant women, done correctly, chiropractic care for your sacroiliitis is non-invasive and safe.
