Suffering from SI Joint pain or Sacroiliac Pain?
Those who suffer from Sacroiliac pain will know how difficult it can be to manage and how much it can hinder both their movements and affect their daily lives.
What is the Sacroiliac joint?
Sacroiliac joints are located between the sacrum and ilium bones. It connects the spine to the hips. The joint is supported by a collection of strong ligaments. It allows sufficient motion during walking and performing any movement. It gives the pelvis some flexibility while maintaining its strength.
Any injury or damage to the joint can cause sacroiliac pain, which ranges from mild to severe depending on the extent and cause of the injury.
The most common cause of SI joint pain is degenerative arthritis, otherwise called Osteoarthritis. Other causes are pregnancy, traumatic injury, infection and more.
The pain is usually felt in your buttocks and lower back and can often extend down one leg or even both legs. It can also affect the groin area and feet.
You may feel extreme pain when standing and walking but the pain eases when lying down. The pain is also sometimes accompanied by some stiffness and burning sensation, which is due to inflammation and arthritis in the SI joint.
