The sacroiliac joint connects the hip bones (iliac crests) to the sacrum, the triangular bone between the lumbar spine and the tailbone (coccyx).
The primary function of the sacroiliac joints is to absorb shock between the upper body and the pelvis and legs. Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint, also called the SI joint, can sometimes cause lower back and/or leg pain.
Leg pain from sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be particularly difficult to differentiate from radiating leg pain caused by a lumbar disc herniation (sciatica) as they can feel quite similar
The Sacrix technique is as safe direct percutaneous procedure allowing for faster recovery and same day treatment. The posterior approach is indicated for the for the treatment of sacroiliitis and sacroiliac joint disruption.
This allows for direct compression and fusion of the saroiliac joint. The SIJ treatment was developed to be safe and less invasive outpatient treatment option.
