Chronic back pain is very common in America, especially for those who work with their hands or lift as part of their daily work activities. Dealing with this pain can be frustrating especially when trying to pinpoint where it is coming from.
One cause of back pain that is frequently overlooked is the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Causes of sacroiliac pain include degenerative causes such as arthritis, history of trauma, failed back surgery and pregnancy. Many with sacroiliac pain suffer with it for years before being seen and discovering the cause, if they discover it at all.
Non-surgical treatments are typically used for this condition, but when these treatments do not work surgical treatments such as SI joint fusion with the iFuse Implant System are now an option. Our Dr. Sundberg is the first physician in Manatee County to perform this procedure. This procedure is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that quickly alleviates pain and gets patients back on their feet quicker than before.
