Sacroiliac Pain Yoga
Possibly: General weight training and core strengthening can certainly help with pain in the sacroiliac joint area. On the other hand, it may worsen the pain. Regardless, it likely won't harm the joint. If the pain doesn't get better or worsens, you really need to see a physiatrist or other musculoskeletal/spine specialist. There are certain conditions a rheumatologist can manage for sacroiliac joint pa.
Varies: 1) sacroiliitis from seronegative spondyloarthropathy. See a rheumatologist 2) arthritis: a steroid injection into the lower joint by an interventional spine specialist. Radiofrequency ablation can cause much longer relief. 3) lax ligament or pelvic imbalances or uneven leg length.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Sacroiliac joint pain lasts until it's fixed, and this depends on the cause. Simple arthritic si joint pain can be helped with steroid injections into the joint, and much longer with radiofrequency ablation of the medial and lateral branch nerves. Best to see a physiatrist or other spine specialist, or a rheumatologist.
There are no new: Ones but standard testing after beginning with a complete history and physical exam with appropriate blood work, plain radiographs, mri, ct and possibly bone scan as well as diagnostic blocks for diagnosis and to rule out other possible causes such as hip or spine pathology or intrapelvic issues.
Yea: It can be a source of pain in people with certain rheumatologic diseases as this is a synovial lined joint. It can also be affected. In people who have had unstable fractures to their pelvis. It is rare to be a primary source of back pain. Back pain often refers to the sacroiliac regions.
The best treatment: Is the one that fixes the underlying cause. In the case of sacroiliac joint dysfunction the underlying cause is pelvic imbalance due to either unequal spasm of psoas muscle, short leg syndrome, bad chair at work or car seat. Arthritis in this joint can cause pain, but usually not in your age group. See a good osteopathic physician or a physical therapist.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Depends what you mean by "hip". Posterior hip pain can be from the musculature in the buttock or may be the hip joint itself. Sacroiliac joint pain can respond very well to a steroid injection or even radiofrequency ablation. A spine specialist can determine where the pain is coming from; a rheumatologist may be needed too.
Exercise: Stretching/strengthening this joint and its ligaments is the best options currently. However if it still persists you may need to be seen by a spine specialist. In our experience, the si joint is typically not the first problem that needs to be addressed. Often the facet joints and herniated disks tend to be a primary issue first that can help this pain issue.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: This depends on speed of walking, your weight and give of the tread as well as shoewear.
Upper back exercises: Will not benefit sciatic pain unless, like bench press, you are increasing your core strength as well.
Not typically: I've never heard of a case of sacroiliac joint pain referring to the lower abdomen. The best way to find out is to get the joint injected under x-ray with steroid and numbing medicine and see if the lower abdomen pain goes away too. Better yet, you can just get the L5 dorsal prim ramus, and s1, s2, (racepinephrine) s3 lateral branch nerves numbed up. An interventional spine specialist will know what this means.
No: Si joint pain is usually localized to that side of the lower back and buttock with some radiaion into the upper leg/groin if it occurs.
Sacroiliac pain: Sacroiliac pain does not radiate to the abdomen- you must consider another possibility and also ask your doctor.
Not typical: Back of thighs yes tailbone yes. Lumborum spams can wrap around to sides and to front discovhenic psin can produce si pain and lower sbdominal pain.
Yes but: Typically, this pain is localized in the posterior buttock region & can refer down to the upper back part of your thighs & sometimes into the groin but this could be hip joint pain if in groins & the front of your thighs. Other spinal regions that refer to the groin are the facet joints at l5-s1 & a high level disc problem like l1-2 level. If the pain is restricting your activities get evaluated.
Flexiblity, focus: Properly executed yoga can be a good way to gently stretch and strenghten muscles. It also can be mentally and physically relaxing. You can control the intensity of the pose as well, which can be a safeguard to injury. A qualified instructor is important at first.
