Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Overview:

The sacroiliac joint connects the hip bones (iliac crests) to the sacrum, the bone between the lumbar spine and the tailbone. The primary function of the sacroiliac joints is to absorb shock between the upper body, pelvis and legs. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, also called the SI joint pain, occurs when there is inflammation in one or both of the sacroiliac joints, causing lower back and/or leg pain. Treatment might involve medications, physical therapy or minimally-invasive techniques, such as joint injections, medial branch block, and more.

Symptoms:

The pain associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction most commonly occurs in the buttocks and lower back. Symptoms may include:

  • Increased pain when standing up 
  • Stiffness or a burning sensation in the pelvis
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Weakness
  • Pain radiating down into the thighs and upper legs
  • Pain in the hips, pelvis or groin 

Causes:

In most cases, sacroiliac joint pain may arise gradually with no obvious cause. Other causes include:

  • Traumatic injury (sudden impact, such as a car accident or fall)
  • Arthritis in the spine, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Pregnancy 
  • Infection 
  • Activities that place repeated stress on the joint

Treatment:

There are numerous treatment options for sacroiliac joint dysfunction. These include:
