- Sacroiliitis (say-kroe-il-e-I-tis) is inflammation of one or both of the sacroiliac joints – where your lower spine and pelvis connect. Sacroiliitis can cause pain in the buttocks or lower back and can affect one or both legs. Standing or climbing stairs for long periods can make the pain worse. Sacroiliitis treatment in warangal
The pain associated with sacroiliitis is most common in the buttocks and lower back. It can also affect the legs, groin, and even the feet. The pain of sacroiliitis can be aggravated by:
- Extended standing
- Carry more weight on one leg than the other
- Go up the stairs
Causes of a dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint are:
- Traumatic injury. Sudden impacts, such as a motor vehicle accident or fall, can damage your sacroiliac joints.
- Arthritis. Attrition arthritis (osteoarthritis) can occur in the sacroiliac joints, as can ankylosing spondylitis – a type of inflammatory arthritis that affects the spine. Sacroiliitis treatment in warangal
- Pregnancy. The sacroiliac joints must loosen and stretch to allow delivery. The extra weight and change in gait during pregnancy can put additional strain on these joints and lead to abnormal wear.
As with other conditions that cause chronic pain, sacroiliitis can lead to depression and insomnia.
