The expert pain management specialists at Florida Pain Relief Centers are dedicated to providing the latest in innovative, state-of-the-art treatment options to ensure the most effective pain relief plan for each individual patient. And now, we are pleased to provide another new and powerful treatment option: The LinQ™ - SI Joint Fusion System by PainTEQ.
The LinQ™ system is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions such as Degenerative Sacroiliitis and Sacroiliac Joint Disruptions. The procedure allows for fusion and stabilization of the SI joint in eligible patients where appropriate non-surgical treatment has failed, and may provide immediate relief of pain symptoms.
What is the Sacroiliac Joint?
Located in the lower portion of the body between the Sacrum and the Pelvis, the Sacroiliac Joint is designed to act as a shock absorber for the upper extremities. This joint, like any other joint, may become injured or degenerated over time. If these changes should occur, they may cause SI Joint pain.
Symptoms of SI Joint Pain:
- Pain located on one side of the lower back
- Pain radiating into the buttocks, lower back and groin
- Referred pain into the lower limbs (may be mistaken for sciatica)
- Difficulty turning over in bed, struggling to put on shoes and socks, leg pain while getting in and out of car
- Stiffness in the lower back when getting up after sitting for long periods and when getting up from bed
- Aching on one side of lower back when driving long distances
Sacroiliac (SI) Joint pain may be caused by a variety of different factors. Two possible causes of SI Joint pain are Degenerative Sacroiliitis and Sacral Disruption. These may be caused through atraumatic (degenerative changes over time) or traumatic (lift, fall, automobile accident) occurrences.
Potential Causes of SI Joint Pain
Patients experiencing the following conditions may be candidates for SI fusion:
- Failed combination of previous treatments
- Extreme chronic pain
- Adjacent segment disease
- Motivated and capable of reasonable post-surgical expectations
- Failed required diagnostic exams (provocative testing and fluoroscopic SI injection)
