Are you looking for a solution to give you lower back and hip relief? We have to get to the cause of it in the first place. Most of us know that back pain can be debilitating and keep you from living your daily life; bending over to pick something up, exercising, or sitting and standing for long periods of time. The article excerpt below discusses one probable cause of your pain: SI dysfunction. Learn what it is and possible solutions available for you.

Your Aching Lower Back: SI Dysfunction

People like to say someone who possesses great strength of character and resolve has “backbone.” The actual spine is the frame on which the rest of your torso and body is built. It keeps you standing tall and helps you move around. As you might expect, then, lower back pain from Sacroiliac (SI) dysfunction can be crippling.

Aching Joints in the Lower Back

Sacroiliac dysfunction, also known as SI dysfunction, is a problem in the joints where your back meets your pelvis. At the lowest point in your lower back is your sacrum. This triangular bone attaches to your right and left ilium bones, which are the two halves of your pelvis. Strong ligaments connect each half of your pelvis to the sacrum and hold everything together. The joints where these bones meet are called the sacroiliac joints.
Now, these two joints aren’t meant to move very much. They move only a few millimeters in any direction. They are designed to support all the weight of your upper body. Problems in these joints, however, can create significant discomfort through your lower back.

What to Expect from SI Dysfunction

How you feel this discomfort may vary. Typically you feel pain in the lowest part of your back, though you might notice it in your hips or groin and thighs as well. Often bending forward or leaning backwards can trigger this. You may develop discomfort when you’re in any one position for too long, whether that’s sitting, standing, or walking, though lying down may help. You might notice “popping” or feel like one leg is longer than the other, too.

The article goes on to explain what causes SI Dysfunction and possible techniques to treat it, such as core stabilization to support your lower back, hip strengthening, muscle energy techniques, and joint mobilization techniques to realign bone position.

These are all good solutions to try, but the root problem causing your lower back and hip pain could be in your feet. Approximately 40% of the population doesn’t realize they have misaligned feet, which not only causes foot problems, but also a painful chain reaction throughout the body in your knees, hips, back, and neck.

Fortunately there is a remarkable solution available called HyProCure®. It’s a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that realigns the feet and stabilizes the ankle by placing a small titanium stent into the naturally occurring space between the ankle and heel bones.
