Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is located in the pelvis. It links the iliac bone (the pelvis) to the sacrum (the lowest part of the spine above the tailbone). The purpose of this joint is to help the body transfer weight and other forces between your upper body and your legs.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is improper movement of the joints at the bottom of the spine that connect the sacrum to the pelvis. It can affect one or both sacroiliac joints. It can happen due to injury, arthritis, pregnancy, and rarely infection.

Symptoms include:

  • Hip pain
  • Discomfort from bending over or standing after sitting for long periods
  • Pain that starts in the low back and travels through the lower buttocks and upper legs
  • Pain improves when lying down
