Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
The sacroiliac (SI) joint is where the pelvis meets the tailbone. This joint can be stressed due to low back injuries, prior surgery, childbirth, and other causes. Symptoms of SI joint dysfunction can include mild to severe pain in the lower back, which can manifest on one or both sides of the body. Prolonged sitting typically aggravates the pain, and many patients find they must frequently rise and stretch if they are required to spend extensive amounts of time in a seated position.
Injury is one of the most common causes of SI joint pain. This causes trauma to the sacroiliac joint area. SI join pain can also occur if a patient has undergone a lumbar fusion procedure due to an injury.
