Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint causes pain in the low back and/or leg. The sacroiliac joint lies next to the spine and connects the sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of the spine) with the pelvis (iliac crest). Pain is often felt coming up from a stooped position such as lifting an object. It is a common cause of lower pain-- pain that often extends into the buttocks and leg. When the SI Joint becomes misaligned or “locked up”, it becomes a source of pain, and requires re-alignment.
- Pain that is usually of to one side closer to your buttocks.
- Aching and stiffness in the lower back.
- Pain radiates to the hip or groin.
