Treating Sacroiliac (SI Joint) vs. Chronic Lower Back Pain

Host: Sanjeev (Sanj) Kakar, M.D. (sanjkakar)

Guest: William W. Cross, III, M.D. (@WilliamCross3MD)

Did you know the lifetime prevalence of generalized low back pain is estimated at 60% to 70% in industrialized countries? Often overlooked, the sacroiliac or SI joint can cause approximately one third of these cases. How do you determine the difference between the two? In this week’s podcast, we discuss the diagnosis of SI joint dysfunction and the different modalities for treatment, including non-operative and surgical management with William W. Cross, M.D., an Associate Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
