Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
What is Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction?
The two sacroiliac joints connect your pelvis with your lower back. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, also called SI joint pain or SI joint dysfunction, is an injury to a sacroiliac joint. It usually affects only one side of the body.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction causes pain in the low back and/or the leg. The pain can make it hard to do things like sitting, walking, or climbing stairs.
Car accidents or falls are the most common cause of sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Diagnosis can be difficult, since the pain may seem like other causes of low back and/or leg pain.
