SI joint dysfunction occurs when the sacroiliac joint, (located in the lower part of the body between the base of the spine and the pelvis,) becomes injured or degenerated over time.
Here are some common causes of SI joint pain:
- Degenerative sacroiliitis
- Sacral disruption
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Post-traumatic SI Joint disruption
- Leg length discrepancy
- Structural pelvic asymmetry
- Tumor (pituitary or metastatic)
- Degenerative osteoarthritis
- Ligamentous laxity (Pregnancy)
- Adjacent segment disease
Symptoms of SI joint dysfunction can be quite painful, and may include:
- Low back pain
- Sciatica-like pain
- Leg pain, burning, numbing, tingling
- Muscle tenderness and tightness in the hips and buttocks
- Inability to sit for long periods of time due to pain
If you experience these symptoms of SI joint dysfunction, you may find relief through the LinQ™ SI Joint Stabilization treatment option by PainTEQ.
LinQ™ is a single implant solution for SI join dysfunction, providing multiple benefits such as:
- Minimally invasive
- Posterior approach
- No metal implants
- No surgical drill
- Quick recovery time
The LinQ™ 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. This remarkable system gives SI joint dysfunction patients a safe, minimally invasive option to combat pain.
After a thorough diagnostic process, your pain physician can help alleviate, and in many cases eliminate, chronic pain by placing a single LinQ™ allograft into the SI Joint. This single implant helps patients immediately regain joint stability and creates an ideal environment for long-term fusion.
