Sacroiliitis

Inflammation of the Sacroiliac Joints

The pelvis and spine are connected by two small sacroiliac (SI) joints. When one or both of these joints becomes inflamed or irritated, that’s called sacroiliitis – a condition that can cause pain in the lower back, buttocks, and groin. Pain is often worse during single-limb activities (like walking, stair-climbing, or getting in and out of a car) or after prolonged sitting and standing.

Sacroiliitis can cause a loss of mobility. With treatment, however, most people are able to return to their normal daily routine.

If you have sacroiliitis – or you suspect that’s the cause of your pain – we encourage you to contact us. Our pain management team specializes in solutions for chronic pain. Call to schedule your appointment: (614) 383-6450.

Common Causes of Sacroiliitis

Why does sacroiliitis occur? Common risk factors and causes include:

  • Normal wear-and-tear (related to aging)
  • Leg length discrepancies
  • Prior spinal fusion surgery or trauma 
  • Pregnancy, which can lead to increased biomechanical strain on the SI joints
  • Arthritis

Our goal is to determine all factors contributing to chronic pain, so we can develop an effective treatment plan.

Treatment Options

Sacroiliitis treatments may include steroid injections to alleviate inflammation, physical therapy, or procedures that block pain signals, such as radiofrequency ablation (cauterization of an inflamed nerve) and peripheral nerve stimulation.
