Even though I have seen three case of painful transverse-alar articulation pain, the vast majority of these articulations are not painful. Suprapubic pain generally is not related to the spine. Some individuals can have hip impingement syndromes which can induce these type of symptoms. A visit to a hip specialist and MRI and an intraarticular injection that yields temporary relief can diagnose this disorder.

L5-S1 injections that help the sacral pain could indicate radiculopathy, degenerative disc disease or even facet syndrome. The injections have to be specifically placed to diagnose which disorder is causing the sacral pain.
