Question Thoracolumbar junction syndrome

Anyone ever heard of this one? I was researching the SI and came across a site that claims that this syndrome mimics SI dysfunction. Supposedly, if you don't get relief from any of the methods that they are currently engaging to cure SI dysfunction, they may be misdiagnosing you and you may have this syndrome.

It all made sense to me. Kinda technical but the stuff that I found goes into great detail and included pictures. It does suggest using a SI or facet injection to diagnose it. But, it also gives the option of using something other than cortisone. They are simply using the shot as a diagnosis tool.

Re: Thoracolumbar junction syndrome

hi, TL junction syndrome and SI syndrome both respond very well to chiropractic manipulation of the spine. your history, symptoms, pain pattern and physical examination findings are the only diagnostic tools your chiropractor will need.
