Back - Sacro Iliac Joint Dysfunction

The sacroiliac joint is situated at the back of the pelvis. The main causes are a biomechanical mal-alignment, a traumatic event, and hormonal changes during pregnancy or inflammatory joint disease. It can refer to the buttock or thigh but rarely goes below the level of the knee.

Signs & symptoms:

  • Pain in the lower back and buttock
  • A blocked feeling in the lower back

Physiotherapy aim is to treat the cause of the pain, therefore restoring normal joint mechanics by removing abnormal ligament stress in this area. The long term aim is to improve strength and stability in the area and aid normal movement patterns.
