What are the signs and symptoms of sacroiliac disease and how is it treated?
The sacroiliac joint is a synovial joint bordered by strong ligaments. Strain and degeneration cause pain and restricted motion. Tenderness to palpation can be elicited over the joint. Immobility of the joint may be noted with leg lifting. Maneuvers causing joint movement such as the Gaenslen’s test (extension) or the Faber Patrick test (exter-nal rotation) can produce pain.
Sacroiliac disease is treated by local anesthetic injections into and around the joint with or without steroids. Physiotherapy may help the restrictive motion component.
