Stop Suffering With Low Back Pain
Millions of people suffer with low back pain. It is a common complaint, which may persist for months or years.
Much of what is thought of as "low back pain" is actually caused by a mis-alignment or sprain of the sacroiliac
joint. The condition often is not diagnosed because a few health care professionals are trained to identify the
specific symptoms which indicate a sacroiliac joint problem. Sacroiliac, or SI, joint disorders do not usually
show up on x-rays. In order to understand the nature of the injury and what can be done to relieve the pain it
is useful to become familiar with the functioning of the sacroiliac joints which are the point of connection
between the lower spine and the pelvis.
Diagnostic testing, such as X-ray, CT scan or MRI, do not usually reveal abnormalities; therefore, they
cannot be used for diagnosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

I suffered from an SI dysfunction for four years after being thrown off a horse. In the
last years before I had SI surgery, my pain had become constant and interfered with most of my
daily activities. I could not walk far before the pain became unbearable. I could not
exercise or do housework without increasing pain driving me to rest. I am eight years after SI
surgery and I have been pain free since six weeks after surgery. What a blessing. I have a normal life!
