The irritating pain that accompanies tight muscles along with limited mobility and the numbness that extends down your buttocks and legs are the all too familiar symptoms associated with low back pain relating to conditions of the lumbar spine. But, when your lumbar back pain points to the sacroiliac joint instead, what are your treatment options?
The function of the sacroiliac joint is to support the movements of the lower extremities. With overuse or underuse, the local muscles surrounding the joint may become inflamed or tight, adding pressure and stress that will often lead to sacroiliac joint dysfunction, the possible true cause for your low back pain.
Low back pain and symptoms of sciatica don’t always originate from the lumbar spine. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction occurs when the sacroiliac joing, which functions by supporting the movements of the lower extremeties, become inflamed or tight due to overuse or underuse, causing pain and discomfort.
