What is Sacroiliac Dysfunction?
Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint generally causes disconfort in the low back and/or leg. This condition is usually more common in young and middle age women. The SI joint connects the sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of the spine) with the pelvis (iliac crest). We do not exactly know what causes SI pain, but it is thought that changes in normal joint motion may be the pain.
• Pain at a specific point towards the bottom of the spine at the top, middle of the buttocks.
• Aching and stiffness in the lower back.
• Pain radiates into the hip or groin.
• If you lie on your back and someone pushes down on both sides of your pelvis you might get pain in the joint.
