Sacroiliac joint pain (SI joint pain) is a common condition that affects the lower back and pelvis. It is estimated that up to 25% of people with lower back pain have SI joint pain, and it is more common in women than men. SI joint pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, arthritis, pregnancy, and degenerative joint disease.
The SI joint is located in the pelvis, connecting the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) to the ilium (the uppermost part of the pelvis). The SI joint is responsible for transmitting weight and force from the upper body to the legs, and it is crucial in providing stability to the lower back and pelvis.
Symptoms of SI joint pain can include:
