If you are experiencing low back pain and/or leg pain, the cause of this pain may be Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction. The lowest region of the spine is the sacrum or coccyx, frequently called the tailbone. The sacroiliac joint lies just above the tailbone and functions as the connector between the sacrum and the pelvis. When the sacroiliac joint malfunctions, it can cause low back and/or leg pain. The normal joint motion can deteriorate, most often a result of too much movement.
While sacroiliac joint pain can be difficult to diagnose, the medical profession now recognizes that the Sacroiliac Joint Injection or Nerve Block provides the most accurate diagnostic information.
