Pain patterns

Because the sacroiliac joints have a specific location within the body, symptoms are typically highly localized. Some of the hallmark indicators of sacroiliac joint dysfunction include: Dull or sharp pain in the lower back and hips that sometimes extends to the groin and/or thighs Discomfort that worsens when standing or walking and improves when lying down Stiffness throughout the affected area A limited range of motion Burning sensations in the pelvic region Inflammation If you are having trouble pinpointing the precise region of your body that is causing you to feel uncomfortable, spine and sij experts can conduct an advanced pain-mapping procedure to identify the exact origination of your pain.
