For the past year I’ve had bad hip pain. I guess that it’s a side effect of being in a wheelchair, and the lack of movement or walking. We recently found out it was my S.I. joint. The S.I. joint is the joint or articulation between the sacrum and ilium. The doctor gave me a Lidocine and Cortisone injection in the joint. Since I tend to have involuntary muscle movements, they gave me Twilight anesthetic to put me out and it was performed in the hospital.

One of the biggest culprits for referring pain to the hip is the SI joint in the lower back. The SI joint is where your pelvis meets your sacrum. This joint  can also be a problem with athletes, especially if they have core weakness or are over training.

Pain that comes on gradually, or moves around from the front, back, and side may be S.I. referred pain. If you have disabilities and feel hip pain, have your doctor check your S.I. Joint.
