Is Your Pain Coming from the Sacroiliac Joint?

The sacroiliac joint is located at the junction of the spine and the pelvis. It functions as a shock absorber that cushions against the force of your upper body.  At least 15% of patients with low back pain will actually have sacroiliac joint pain.

Where exactly is your pain?

Bunions Causes and Treatment

[pb_row ][pb_column span="span8"][pb_divider el_title="Divider 3" div_border_width="2" div_border_style="solid" div_border_color="#E0DEDE" appearing_animation="0" ][/pb_divider][pb_text el_title="bunion" width_unit="%" enable_dropcap="no" appearing_animation="0" ]

Many people think a bunion is a simple bone prominence by the big toe. Actually, a bunion can be a progressive deformity of bones and joints.

These mal-aligned structures can cause a painful “bump,” but can also cause functional problems, leading to other regions of foot pain. 

Bunions develop slowly. Pressure on the big toe joint causes the big toe to lean toward the second toe. Over time, the normal structure of the bone changes, resulting in the bunion bump. This deformity will gradually increase and may make it painful to wear shoes or walk.

Golf is a hobby for some, a pastime for others, and a passion for many.  Any day a golfer is kept off the course due to an injury is a day wasted, according to Dr. Bill Ward, an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedic Specialists of Oakland County.
