Sacroiliitis

Sacroiliitis is an inflammation of one or both of the sacroiliac joints, which connects the lower spine and pelvis. With sacroiliitis, even the slightest movements of your spine can be extremely uncomfortable or even painful for you.

Sacroiliitis can be difficult to diagnose, and it may be mistaken for other causes of low back pain, including sciatica, herniated disks and strained muscles. Sacroiliitis may be associated with a group of diseases called spondyloarthropathies, which cause inflammatory arthritis of the spine.

Sacroiliitis symptoms may include pain and stiffness in your lower back, thighs or buttocks, pain that worsens with walking because the motion of your hips strains your sacroiliac joints. Pain radiating down your leg, limping, and decreased range of motion.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, our goal at Pacific Pain Medicine Consultants is to provide patient’s with quality pain management treatment while still optimizing the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.

We are providing telemedicine visits for new and established patients. Patients with severe pain that warrant more urgent treatment with injections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will need to evaluate the patient’s age, medical comorbidities, and risk factors as well as potential symptoms of respiratory infection in making a determination. Elective pain procedures and injections are deferred at this time in order to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus and to ration personal protect equipment so it may be available where it is most critically needed.
