What is a SI Joint Fusion?
When the following symptoms persist for several weeks or months and do not respond to nonsurgical treatment, sacroiliac joint fusion may be recommended:
Significant low back, hip, or groin pain that makes it difficult to function in everyday life and has not been effectively treated using nonsurgical methods. Sacroiliac joint pain can be felt on one or both sides of the body; one-sided low back pain is an early indication that the SI joint may be the pain generator. Pain is typically confined to the lower back and pelvis, but may radiate down the back of the leg (sciatica).
See Sciatica Causes
Instability in the pelvis and lower back, which may cause pain or difficulty when standing, walking, or moving from sitting to standing or vice versa. Pain may be especially bad when climbing stairs or walking up an incline.
Stiffness and limited mobility in the low back, hips, groin, or legs.
Exacerbated pain after sitting or standing for long periods of time, or from certain sleeping positions, such as lying on the affected side for too long.
Basic SI Joint Fusion Patient Information
After surgery, you’ll need to be on crutches for about 3 weeks. The good news is that if your SI joint pain is on just one side, your recovery time will be quicker (than if you had pain on both sides). But if you’ve had a previous spine fusion, it may take longer for you to recover.
