Is There A Permanent Cure For Si Joint Dysfunction
No: There is currently no "cure" for si joint dysfunction. This condition is usually best treated with aggressive physical therapy to stabilize the pelvis, restore normal alignment, and strengthen the core. Medication, injections, braces, and modalities (heat/ice/etc) may also be used to reduce pain during this process.See 2 more doctor answers

I want to be tested for SI joint dysfunction because I have read about the symptoms and I have alot of them. Who should I see to have this done?
Start with your PCP: Who can start some preliminary investigations and thrn refer you to an Orthopedist or a Spinre surgeon in your area, for further tests and management. Good Luck.
Ergonomics: Be sure the chair you choose is adjustable...This helps personalize it to you. It should have good lumbar support. You should also try to stand up and move every 20-30 min which will help your discomfort. Best of luck!
Can be difficult...: Both can have similar symptoms: pain in the buttock, back of the thigh, difficulty putting weight down on that limb, nerve irritation from the sciatic nerve (pain, tingling down the leg). Physical exam stretching the piriformis can make the diagnosis and sometimes help it. Injection into the si joint can make si diagnosis. Physical therapy, antiinflammatory meds often help both.
Pain sacroiliitis: Personal experience with sacroiliitis which is inflammation of SI joint. Pain was tolerable with sitting and standing. Any type of turning like getting out of bed or car aggravated the pain. Often very sharp shooting pains. My pain took four months to resolve with three injections of corticosteroids into the joint and physical therapy when pain was tolerable.See 2 more doctor answers

Indications for SI Joint injections? I hear some patients may be better candidates than others. Have SI Joint dysfunction.
Yes: SI joint injection can be both diagnostic and therapeutic. Upto 15% of low back pain is from SI joint, esp. Obese old patients. You are correct that patient selection is VVIP. That ofcourse depends on physical examination, history and imaging. ++ Patrick's test, tenderness over the joint are positive signs. You can seek an opinion of a pain specialist to perform a SIJ injection under fluoro. -GL
