In short Dr. med. Volker Urban describes the sacroiliac joint (SI joint) as a structure that is “often overlooked” and that imitates symptoms of other problems in cases of dysfunction. The neurosurgeon uses the SacroLoc pelvic brace for testing during the differential diagnosis.
- If the MRI results show no pathological findings, he has a comprehensive discussion with the patient and then checks whether the SI joint function is impaired.
- In addition to mobility tests and a clinical examination, he also uses the SacroLoc during the diagnosis process. If his patients notice relief when they wear it, he will prescribe the pelvic brace for non-surgical treatment.
- The SacroLoc has been proven to influence nutation movement in the SI joints and relieves the ligaments. It helps reduce pain and preserve mobility.
