Lumbar spine and posterior pelvic/hip girdle pain is often challenging to diagnose and treat. This session elucidates an evidence-based paradigm for effective diagnosis and treatment, rooted in knowledge of prevalence rates and the diagnostic value of clinical tests. Recent developments in related outcomes literature will also be reviewed.

Zachary L. McCormick, MD
- Identify multiple anatomic pain generators that refer to the buttocks including the lumbar spine, sacroiliac complex, and hip joint. This will include the neural anatomy of the lumbar spine and posterior pelvic/hip girdle.
- Discuss prevalence of discogenic, facetogenic, sacroiliac joint complex, and hip joint pain, as well as how pre-test probability is affected by varying pain referral patterns.
- Discuss clinical outcome literature for treatments of lumbosacral and sacroiliac complex pain.
