Things to Remember Before Appointment

Diagnosing sacroiliac joint-related pain begins before your first appointment with a doctor or chiropractor.

Three things to do before your appointment can help make the visit highly productive.

 

I. Know your medical history

  • If you have an existing spinal condition, it can definitely affect SI joint dysfunction
  • Any recent trauma, like an auto accident or fall?
  • Pregnant?

Think about these before, because they can help a doctor identify links or cause of Sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

II. Know the symptoms

Make it a point to know the symptoms so you can explain them in full detail.

  • Dull pain
  • Achy
  • Stiff

If you need to, write them down.

Common symptoms:

  • Low back pain

Pain that travels through:

  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Groin
  • Pain when pressing on the Sacroiliac joints 
  • Stiffness or electrical burning sensations in the pelvis

Know when the symptoms get worse and when they go away. For example:

The pain usually increases when:

  • Standing
  • Walking for extended periods
  • Climbing stairs
  • Getting/rising up from a seated position

And the pain usually goes away when lying down.

III. Write down questions for your doctor.

Think about what you want your doctor to understand and the pain you are going through.

Write down questions and take them with you.

This questions could be like:

  1. Is this pain caused by a sacroiliac joint problem?
  2. Why rule out sacroiliac joint dysfunction?
  3. How long does it take for the treatment/s to take effect?   
  4. Is the treatment plan for long sustained relief or short-term relief?

The Appointment

Ask your doctor to examine you for sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

Low back pain research shows the sacroiliac joint, is a definite cause of low back pain.

This problem affects  30-34% of patients with low back pain.

A doctor can diagnose sacroiliac joint dysfunction based on medical history and a physical exam.

The physical exam, which can include performing specific maneuvers/movements to re-create the pain in a controlled manner, to help confirm a diagnosis.

Physical tests can initiate sacroiliac joint pain and help diagnose low back pain that is being caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

If three out of five tests produce pain, then more than likely you have sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

Dialogue with your doctor/chiropractor

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed during a doctor’s visit, especially if you have a condition that is hard-to-diagnose .

Talk with your doctor, their voice should not be the only one heard, this is your body and your health that’s at stake.

Your information is essential to help with an accurate diagnosis.

If your doctor doesn’t feel comfortable or feels they don’t have enough experience in diagnosing sacroiliac joint pain, then ask for a referral to a spine specialist/chiropractor that is comfortable and does have the experience in diagnosing sacroiliac joint pain.

There are a number of treatments for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, including pain medication, epidural steroid injection, and surgery. However, chiropractic care is non-invasive and does not have the unpleasant, sometimes harmful side effects of pain meds. It is safe and effective and treats the entire body instead of just the part that hurts.

Patients who experience lower back pain never want to deal with it again, but it can flare up periodically. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, roughly 20% of those who suffer from low back pain will eventually deal with it chronically. This can cause frustration, primarily when it affects mobility.

Before you run screaming in horror to the medicine cabinet, one of the best reasons to participate in chiropractic treatment is that it helps reduce the chance of a recurrence.
