In brief: Fusion SIJ

Two of my patients had IC symptoms resolve after their hypermobile sacroiliac joints, SIJ's, were fused.
My theory is that IC is an autonomic nervous system disorder caused by irritation of the presacral plexus parasympathetic nerves, which overly the SIJ, & which are irritated by abnormal hypermobility & range of motion of an SIJ, which is often found in women with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome.

IC: Amongst my industrial injury clients have been females whose IC symptoms remitted after they had surgical fusion of a disordered & hypermobile sacroiliac joint caused by lifting and slip & fall injuries; diagnosed & treated via Occupational Disabilities Guidelines, ODG, criteria.
