Spinal Fusion for SI Joint Pain
Located in the pelvis, the sacroiliac joint (SI joint) links the pelvis to the lowest part of your spine above the tailbone. It’s essential for absorbing shock and preventing force from reaching the spine. Just like any other joint in the body, it can be injured or become degenerative—leading to pain in the lower back, buttock and legs.
As soon as SI joint is diagnosed, your MOSH physician may recommend physical therapy, injection therapy, medication, or minimally invasive spinal fusion.
