Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction is a condition affecting the joints located between the sacrum and the hip bones. This joint plays a crucial role in weight-bearing and movement, and any dysfunction can result in lower back and hip pain. This condition affects the joint between the sacrum and the ilium bones of the pelvis and can cause a range of symptoms that can make daily life difficult.

 The sacroiliac joint is a critical area in your body that connects your spine to your pelvis. When this joint becomes dysfunctional, it can cause a variety of symptoms, including low back pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. Many people with sacroiliac joint dysfunction also experience pain in the buttock area that can spread down the back of the leg.
