drknowsbest : Sacral or sacroiliac pain can mimic low back pain or sciatica or can be part of a syndrome of all three
drknowsbest : Sacral adjustments can help but strengthening of loose ligaments is improtant or certain positions can trigger an si malalignements pretty easily
drknowsbest : Hamstring stretches and standing usually help while bending and sitting usually worsen it
drknowsbest : Although cortisone injections do ot provide long term help they can pinpoint a diagnosis to determine if it is the sacroiliac joint
drknowsbest : And MRI is not always conclusive
drknowsbest : Short term I would try heat and rest for now wi gentle hamstring stretches at the hip by placing a leg up slightly below hip height and stretching chest to toe if no long term help a consult by an orthopedist may help to focus the chiropractics
drknowsbest : Any more questions.
drknowsbest : Sacroiliac joint dysfunction usually most hurts at area where back of pelvis and hip socket connect where there is a slight depressin
drknowsbest : If no more questions please press accept so that we may exit
I do occassionally have some radiation dowm my leg and when I try to stand in one spot, the ache throughout the leg forces me to move or sit. Is this consistent with what you have indicated thus far.
drknowsbest : Yes sciatica can be part of a malialignmenf of the ileum and pain in the psoas muscle into the groin as well
Thanks for your help.
