Sacroiliac Joint Pain

What is Sacroiliac Joint Pain?

The sacroiliac joint is the link between your spine and pelvis. It is what connects your upper body to your lower body, hence it is very important for the stability of your body. The joints are usually very strong but can become painful or somewhat unstable in the following populations

  1. Pregnant women (due to the hormone relaxin)
  2. Runners
  3. Gymnasts
  4. Sports or work involving jumping or hard landing

Sacroiliac Joint Pain can be a common source of low back pain and is often misdiagnosed. It is a complex presentation with referred pain that can travel around the hips and pelvis in varying ways.
