Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction Injury Claims
Have you suffered a sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury that was caused by the negligence of someone else? If so, you really ought to think about getting some legal help. You may be eligible to be compensated for your sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury.
Your sacroiliac joint is the joint between the ilium of your pelvis and the sacrum at the base of your spine, which are joined by ligaments. Your sacroiliac joint is a strong, weight bearing synovial joint that has irregular depressions and elevations which produce interlocking of your bones.
Inflammation of your sacroiliac joint may be brought about by sacroiliitis. Sacroiliitis is one condition that can cause disabling low back pain.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is another condition in which there is inflammation of your sacroiliac joint. However, while both sacroiliitis and sacroiliac joint dysfunction bring about low leg and back pain resulting from inflammation of your sacroiliac joint, the origin of the inflammation is different. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is caused by a disruption in the normal movement of your sacroiliac joint. This is either too little or too much movement in your joint.
Pain is the primary sign or symptom of a sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury. This is pain that you will probably experience in the back of your hips or your lower back. You may also experience pain in your thighs and groin. With a sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury, it is often hard to determine the exact source of your pain.
Symptoms and results of Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
The pain that you have with a sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury is usually made worse when you stand or walk and gets better when you lie down. In addition, a sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury can also result in:
- A burning sensation and stiffness in your pelvis
- Urinary frequency
- Transient prickling, tingling or numbness
Like most of the other joints in your body, your sacroiliac joint has a layer of cartilage that covers your bone. Your bones start to rub against each other when this cartilage is damaged or worn away. This is the primary thing that causes disruption in the normal movement of your sacroiliac joint, which brings about sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
However, any condition that changes your normal walking pattern puts greater stress on your sacroiliac joint and may have a part in causing sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Examples of things that can cause sacroiliac joint dysfunction are:
- One leg being longer than the other
- Pain in your hip, knee, ankle or foot
A sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury can be the result of some type of accident, such as a car accident or a hard fall. If your sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury was caused by an accident that was not your fault but was due to the negligence of someone else, as mentioned at the beginning, you really should see a personal injury attorney and discuss your case with him or her.
A personal injury attorney will evaluate your case and advise you on the best way to proceed. It may be that you will be able to receive proper compensation for your sacroiliac joint dysfunction injury that resulted from the negligence of another party.
