Sacroiliac Dysfunction

The sacroiliac joint or SI joint connects the spine to the pelvis. It is formed by the connection of the sacrum, the triangular shaped bone in the lower portion of the spine, to the right and left iliac bones. The iliac bones are the two large bones that make up the pelvis. The sacrum and iliac bones are held together by a collection of strong ligaments where there is relatively little motion. When we are erect the SI joint needs to support the entire weight of the upper body acting as a shock absorber between the bones. Pain in the sacroiliac joint can be caused by trauma, such as a fall, sudden jarring from a jump, the normal aging process of osteoarthritis, pregnancy, or any condition
