I am 9 months out from 2 level fusion (L4-5,L-5S1) and now I am having severe sacroiliac joint pain..it is almost inacpapctiating me. Does anyone else have this problem and what are they doing for it.


  • HELLO AND WELCOME :Hello buckyd

    I have a question about your sacroiliac joint pain. I always get pain in mine also. I tell the doctors and they just never look into it. I guess they think its from my disc herniations. in my lumbar spine. is there a test for this area? Where your diagnosis just in the sacro joint? or does it mean bad sciatica? I get really bad sciatica but never had surgery et for my problem. trying every other resource first.

    I wish i could help you moe with your answer, there are many people with this problem and had same surgery that will be along soon to help.

    mean while search the conditions link above and use the search engine to find your answer faster.

    again welcome
  • I am unfortunately 4 yrs experiecing this tearmaking, life breaking pain.

    I finally found a surgeon who gets it.

    There is a simple function test
    you can do your self which point right to SI joint dysfunction.

    Lay on you back, raise both you knees to 90 degree, then cross over one leg bring ankle over to opposite knee, if you are to do that, might be non indicator,,,but in that position have someone lean and put pressure on your pelvic bone, if extereme pain comes, you have a SI joint that is moving around too much due to major muscle sprain or tear.

    I have had alot dealt with this. If you would like to PM I will be happy to offer you more detailed discussions.
