About this book


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.
