Sacroiliac joint dysfunction in Children

Sacroiliac joint pain can have many causes and affect many people.  Children can also suffer sacroiliac joint pain and pelvic pain.  Often patients will describe hip pain when they really are describing the pelvic area. Although not common, sacroiliac joint dysfunction can affect children especially when they are experiencing growth spurts.

Here is a testimonial from a mother of a young lad who came to visit us on crutches and couldn’t walk

“My 10 year old boy is a very sporty child who never keeps still, he had hip and back pain for a number of weeks, unable to fully weight bear, using crutches and even a wheelchair just to get the christmas shopping done and get him out of the house.  Unable to attend school , on 3 different painkillers and waking up during the night, it was awful to see a child suffering and you are left feeling helpless.

2 MRI’s later, a review by the spinal team and a hip specialist, both of whom were unsure as to what was causing the pain.  There was even talk of invasive surgery to explore further. I then came across Atlas and a phone call later I booked in for a review and within days my son had an assessment from John who assured me he would get him sorted.  Well he wasn’t wrong, he ascertained he had a significant leg length difference that was throwing his hips out of alignment causing the back and hip pain.  He fitted a heel lift and commenced some intense physiotherapy and within a few weeks he was back to playing football, off the painkillers and back to the happy boy we knew we should have.

This is all down to John, I cannot thank him enough, I have my 10 year old back to his former self.  Had I not have found Atlas Pain Relief Centre who knows where we would have been!   Thank You”     Nicola Robinson
