Dr. Visotsky is incorrect.
Sacroiliac joint (sij) dysfunction is an aseptic and non-inflammatory process. Medical literature reports this disorder is not able to be detected by blood studies, imaging studies, or even nuclear scans. Up to 30% of peope with chronic low back pain experience pain generation from the sij. Treatment includes yoga, sij belts, pain control &, in resistant cases, fusion.
