In today’s blog post we’re going to discuss a little bit about the pelvis and how it relates to low back pain.

A lot of our patients come in our office with complaints about low back pain. A lot of times it's coming from the lumbar spine whether it's a disc or a pinched nerve. But a lot of times the pain can be coming from your pelvis and that includes the ilium. These are these two bones on the ides and your sacrum is right at the bottom there. The pelvis is supposed to move back and forth at the joint called your sacrum realiac. If that’s stuck then that condition can manifest into low back pain. The pain can be on the side and it can hurt when you're getting up from a seated position.

We have a good way to evaluate it in the office. Many of you with this problem present with a short leg or other visible abnormality. So if you have lower back pain and you don't know where it could be coming from, come on into the office we'll evaluate you and provide you the chiropractic care necessary to put you back to pain free living.
