Sacroiliac Joints Disfunction
Sacroiliac Joints dysfunction generally refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint region that is caused by abnormal motion in the sacroiliac joint, either too much motion (hypo-mobility) or too little motion (hyper-mobility).
It typically results in inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, and can be debilitating such us with hip joint disfunction.
The sacroiliac joint is a true diarthrodial joint that joins the sacrum to the pelvis.
The pelvic girdle is made up of two innominate bones (the iliac bones) and the sacrum. The innominate bones join in the front of the pelvis to form the pubic symphysis, and at back of the sacrum to form the sacroiliac joints.
Each innominate bone joins the femur(thigh bone) to form the hip joint. Thus the sacroiliac joint moves with walking and movement of the torso.
According to this anatomy, we understand there is possibility sacroiliac joint will affect some problems on the hip joint with sitting and walking.
If there is the sacroiliac joint dysfunction, we have some symptoms on the groin region and hip joint.
Studies have documented that motion does occur at the joint. Therefore, slightly sublimed and even locked positions can occur.
Muscles and ligaments surround and attach to the SI Joint in the front and back, primarily on the ilial or sacral surfaces. These can all be a source of pain and inflammation if the SI joint is dysfunctional.
For decades, the sacroiliac joint was suspected to be a common cause of low back and/or leg pain, although difficulty in probing it with standard diagnostic tests left many in the medical profession skeptical. Also, over the last twenty to thirty years, the medical profession has focused more on discogenic pain (herniated disc, degenerative disc disease) as a common cause of low back and/or leg pain.
In the Motion Palpation it can be seen sacroiliac joint is dysfunctional, or not. Your complain might also be affected by sacroiliac joint.
