Therapy in January of 2014. I like to consider myself as semi athletic. To stay in shape and keep a positive outlook on life I enjoy running,
playing basketball, walking the dogs and hiking with our pups and boys . I was starting to have some pain in my hip that was making that difficult
for me to do those things and / or painful during and after. With the help of their staff I am feeling much better and I am able to do the things
that I love to do with little to no pain. Where they stand out to me is their personal care and explaining to the patient what it is they are doing
and how it will help. That is very hard to find in a Dr today. Bottom line If you want to get better they WILL get you there. They are experts!

The prognosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction varies depending on the cause of the dysfunction. When the problem is caused by pregnancy, the prognosis is excellent, as the condition usually improves after pregnancy during the postpartum period. Conditions affecting the sacroiliac joints such as ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis are chronic, but excellent treatments are available. These treatments can minimize the SI joint pain and prevent destruction of the joints. Degenerative arthritis affecting the SI joint is also a chronic condition and cannot be reversed, but treatments are generally very effective in improving symptoms.
While recent research has questioned their usefulness, some medical research has shown that the supplements glucosamine and chondroitin may relieve pain in some people with osteoarthritis, especially in the knee. There is no evidence that glucosamine can help rebuild cartilage. SAMe is another supplement with potential benefits for osteoarthritis. In fact, some research has shown it may be as effective an anti-inflammatory drugs. Remember to always let your doctor know about any supplements you're taking, because they can have side effects and interact with medications.
