Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Can some one suggest the cure for sacroiliac joint pain which of my friend (70 years) is having for last 4/5 months. So far nothing seems to be reducing the problem even after taking pain killers,doing exercises as advised by physiotherapist and all kind of heating to the joint etc. Doctors have practically told me to live with this as it is age related.

  • Try sacroiliac belt and see if that helps.

  • if it is the osteo arthritis variety rest and

    light exercise can help.

    sacrum is a bone at the bottom of the spine and ilium are two bones connected to sacrum .

    the legs join the ilium.

    some people say homeo is good in osteo.

    if there is inflamation try nsaids,

    there is no easy escape.

    one solution is to lie down on bed and take light exercise.

  • dear kumar,

    i failed to give you the crucial issue ,

    for which i described the anatomy above.

    it is that, this joint cannot get a movement easily,.

    lie on your back ,

    fold one leg so that you can reach your knee with the hand .then pull the knee towards the chest .[for one leg only .rest of the body nailed to the bed]

    now this will move the joint a bit.

    do the same for the other leg as well.

    make it a habit.

    first get in touch with some physical therapist and medicine together somehow get a cure temporarily.

    then try the special exercise above for long term effect

    .orthopedic medicines too to be followed .you can also search for sacroiliac exercise in net.

    good luck

  • Follow the instructions in Dr. Mary Pulig Schatz's book "Backcare Basics". It talks extensively about sacro-iliac pain and the yoga poses to do (v.simple ones). It's usually due to weak iliac muscles.
