What is SI Joint Dysfunction?
Sacroiliac dysfunction is a condition that may cause low back pain, leg pain and even neurologic symptoms such as numbness or tingling. It can be dramatically similar to symptoms caused by low back conditions such as a disc herniation, bone spur or other degenerative conditions. It may also be associated with primary hip problems as well. A very important association is in patients that have had lumbar fusions. Previous fusions of the lower spine often lead to SI joint dysfunction.
