SICAGE® System Overview


The most common type of pain that many adults experience is low back pain unrelated to a specific spinal defect or disease.  Approximately 80% of adults will suffer from low back pain during their lifetime.  Low back pain is one of the leading causes of disability.

For a long time an underappreciated source of low back pain has been derived from the sacroiliac (SI) joint.  Many adults who experience low back pain are unaware that the source of their pain is not coming from their low back but rather their SI joint.  In up to 25% of the patients presenting with chronic low back pain, the focus of their pain comes from the sacroiliac joint, known as sacroiliac joint dysfunction.1,2

The SICAGE® System has been designed to provide a minimally invasive approach to treating sacroiliac joint dysfunction.   The objective of this minimally invasive approach is to provide a short hospital stay and a quick recovery.
