Osteoarthritis and Sacroliitis Pain in the Spine


Joint disorder and associated pain has been part of human life since the dawn of time and as people get more and more active and spend less time relaxing and taking care of ourselves, the increase in spinal problems has only continued to grow. Cases of Osteoarthritis and inflammation of the spine, the vertebrae, and nerves themselves are becoming more and more common. Sometimes an inflammation can set into one or both joints and this is called Sacroliitis. This condition results in a great deal of pain depending on how bad the injury and where exactly it is.

Symptoms and Signs:

  • Pain radiating throughout the back, hips, groin, and legs and elsewhere

  • Some have a slightly noticeable curve or indent in the lower back region

  • There’s a sharp pain when sitting, bending, leaning, or stooping

  • Severe pain shooting through the spine and into the legs when moving

  • Stiffness is common-especially after sitting or standing for extended periods

  • Pain can also be exhibited in the back and legs during sexual intercourse
