The sacroiliac (SI) joint is a small but important joint located in the lower back, where the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) meets the iliac bone (part of the pelvis). The SI joint helps to transfer weight and force between the upper body and the lower body, and it is critical for proper movement and stability.
However, the SI joint can become destabilized or dysfunctional due to various factors, such as injury, arthritis, or pregnancy. When this happens, it can lead to pain and discomfort in the lower back and pelvis, as well as difficulty with daily activities.
Sacroiliac joint stabilization is a procedure designed to strengthen and stabilize the SI joint in order to alleviate pain and improve mobility. There are several approaches to SI joint stabilization, including physical therapy, medications, and surgery.
One common minimally invasive surgical technique for SI joint pain is called sacroiliac joint stabilization. During this procedure, places a bone graft via a minimally invasive approac to hold the joint in place while it heals. The goal of the procedure is to create a solid, stable joint that will not move excessively and cause pain.
Overall, sacroiliac joint stabilization is a complex and specialized area of interventional pain medicine, and it is important to work with an experienced healthcare provider to determine the best treatment approach for your specific needs. If you are experiencing chronic pain or discomfort in the lower back or pelvis, it may be worth discussing the possibility of SI joint stabilization with your doctor.
