Chronic low back pain can have a dramatic impact on daily activities as well as the ability to work. SI-BONE is focused on advancing the understanding of the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Clinical literature shows that up to 25% of low back pain can be attributed to the SI joint.1,2 Other studies have shown that following lumbar spine surgery, some patients develop problems with their SI joint.3,4,5
