Spine & Nerve podcast
In this week's episode of the Spine & Nerve podcast, Dr. Brian Joves and Dr. Nicolas Karvelas discuss several articles regarding both the diagnosis as well as the treatment of gluteal region musculoskeletal disorders.
Topics discussed include the physical exam for sacroiliac joint dysfunction; as well as advanced treatment options for the relatively more rare chronic refractory coccydynia, and the relatively more common greater trochanter region pain syndrome. Listen as the doctors summarize and discuss these articles addressing a very common chief complaint of buttock/gluteal region pain.
