Hip & Pelvic Pain in Winnebago?

Chiropractor Winnebago IL Hip and Pelvic Pain

Are you having Hip and Pelvic pain in Winnebago? It has been surprising to us how many people we have seen in the last month with hip pain. Most of the time when people are having "hip pain" it is usually SI (Sacroiliac) pain. Usually, this pain will be at the beltline.


Understanding Hip and Pelvic Pain in Winnebago

Where is the SI joint located? The sacroiliac (SI) joint is located in the pelvis. It links the iliac bone (pelvis) to the sacrum (lowest part of the spine above the tailbone). This joint transfers weight and forces between your upper body and legs. It is an essential component for energy transfer between the legs
and the torso.


Symptoms

SI joint pain is usually caused by irritation in the joint that causes inflammation. Inflammation causes pressure in the joint which can cause intense to mild pain.
The pain associated with the SI joints most commonly occurs in the buttocks and lower back. It can also affect the legs, groin, and even the feet. SI joint pain can be aggravated by:

  • Prolonged standing
  • Bearing more weight on one leg than the other
  • Stair climbing
  • Running
  • Taking large strides
  • Transitioning from sitting to standing
  • Putting your shoes/socks on
  • Prolonged sitting
  • Rolling over in bed
