Could My Lower Back Pain Be Caused By Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction?

Do You Have Sacroiliac (SI) Pain or Dysfunction?

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is often overlooked as a source of back pain. Issues with the SI joint can cause pain from the low back down through the lower buttocks and upper legs. This happens when the sacroiliac joint (located in the pelvis) becomes disrupted or injured, (e.g., after an injury or pregnancy).

If you have low back pain, it is a good idea to mention assessment of the SI joint to your doctor. There are comprehensive diagnostic techniques now available.
