Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers: Symptoms And Treatment Of Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Did you know that it may become difficult for patients experiencing sacroiliac joint pain to walk and do other activities due to having a limited range of motion in their backs? Ongoing pain such as this can make it a struggle for patients to focus on daily life tasks, and that’s when our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists would love to help.

Your ongoing sacroiliac joint pain could be occurring as the result of any one of the following problems:

  • a fall

  • work injury

  • car accident

  • pregnancy

  • childbirth

  • hip surgery

  • spinal surgery

No matter which life circumstance caused you to feel immense and chronic pain, it can be common for the symptoms of sacroiliac joint pain to be staggered across many areas. Pinpointing just one designated area of pain can sometimes be impossible. Many Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers patients report the usual locations of pain in the buttocks, lower back, hips, upper thighs, and sacrum that can often be felt in the groin and pelvis.

In these situations, nonsurgical procedures are generally sought after as the primary source of pain relief. Our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists often utilize sacroiliac injections to help patients find relief from sacroiliac joint pain. The injections are made up of a local anesthetic and a steroid medication, which is meant to reduce the inflammation and swelling of tissue in and around the joint space. Your pain may return, and you may have soreness at the injection site for a day or two, but this is only due to the mechanical process of needle insertion (as well as initial irritation from the steroid itself). Most Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers patients begin to notice pain relief around the fifth day or sooner.

Imagine being able to complete transitional movements like shifting weight back and forth from one leg to the other or climbing a set of stairs without feeling that sacroiliac joint pain!

If you have ongoing pain near your sacrum and would like to make an appointment with our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists, please feel free to give us a call at 405-751-0011.
