A belt for Sacroiliac Pain

By Dipakdarji Subscribe to RSS | May 24th 2012 | Views:

Most people whom suffered from lower back pain automatically assume that sacroiliac joint is the cause, even though it has not been proven medically or by their doctor. The sacroiliac joints' basic function in the human body is to allow torsional or twisting motions each time a person moves his legs.

Although specialists in the field have now understood the concept of sacroiliac joint causing pain in the lower back, they are still puzzled regarding its evaluation and treatment because of the complexity of the joints' anatomy and the movement patterns at the joints itself and around its immediate surrounding area. Nevertheless, it is confirmed that sacroiliac joint pain is often a result of tremendous pressure exerted on and against the sacroiliac joints, as when a person bends, sits for long periods, lifts heavy objects, and/or arches his body. The pain can range from a simple ache in the back to an excruciating affliction that may even bring the sufferer down to restricted mobility. Commonly affecting the young and the middle aged person, pain in sacroiliac joint is usually felt on either the left or right side on the lower back region and around the upper portion of the groin, buttock or thigh; although, in some rare cases, that pain can be experience on both two sides of lower back region. The affliction can radiate even down to the leg.

However, the afflicted individual can heal well with proper treatment. Aside from the usual pain reliever and anti-inflammatory medications that the doctor may prescribe, he or she may be advised to have sufficient rest without getting into activities that might trigger pain; refrain from sitting for long periods; apply warm packs over the painful areas or around those muscles that may have already tightened up, and to use a sacroiliac joint belt. The latter is a supportive device especially used to firm up the sacroiliac joints to lessen the pain.

A sacroiliac belt has a specialized compression feature that, when strapped in place, it serves as a stand-in for the dysfunctional muscles and ligaments, providing support to the sacroiliac joints and keeping it from getting overstretched. It is also purposely designed to be smaller so that it can snugly fit over the tailbone and hipbone areas.

There are, actually, different types of sacroiliac belts, each designed according to the specific areas where pain attacks.
