Sacroiliac (SI) joint disorders and the associated symptoms have been well known for over a century. In fact, in the early 1900s symptoms which seemed to arise from the back were frequently attributed to the sacroiliac (SI) joint, and open surgical procedures were used to treat the joint. 

According to scientific data, it's common for pain from the SI joint to feel like disc or low back pain. To avoid unnecessary lumbar spine surgery, SI joint disorders should be strongly considered in low back pain diagnosis.

Scott Getsoian, PT, DPT, DHSc, OCS, MTC, FAAOMPT and Dr. Ryon Hennessy, MD shares their knowledge and expertise on "The Symptomatic SI Joint Clinical Examination, Diagnosis and Treatment".
