Contents The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) has been forgotten from history -- Basic understanding of the sacroiliac joint -- Pathophysiology of sacroiliac joint disorder -- Diagnosis of sacroiliac joint disorder -- Treatment of sacroiliac joint disorder -- Manual for sacroiliac joint injections -- Improvements and prevention of sacroiliac joint disorder -- The tragedy of low back pain that cannot be diagnosed from images -- Overview of our activities
Summary This book focuses on lower back pain, comprehensively covering the concept, etiology, diagnosis and treatment for those types of pain specifically caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Particular attention is given to understanding the pathology, diagnostic techniques and useful methods for successfully treating patients. Sacroiliac joint pain, which is one of the most common causes of non-specific lower back pain, shows no specific abnormal imaging findings on X-ray, CT or MRI; as a result, it is difficult to diagnose or even misdiagnosed. Further, in recent years the sacroiliac joint has become the subject of growing interest, and innovative implant systems such as iFuse and DIANA are now being developed for its treatment. Accordingly, Sacroiliac Joint Pain offers a valuable resource for healthcare professionals such as orthopedic surgeons, family doctors, spine surgeons, pain clinicians, rehabilitation doctors, physical therapists, osteopathists and patients suffering from lower back pain
