The sacroiliac joint is a firm, small joint that lies at the junction of the spine and the pelvis. Most often when we think of bones, we think of knees, hips, and shoulders–joints that are made to undergo motion. The sacroiliac joint does not move much, but it is critical to transferring a load of your upper body to your lower body.
Signs and Symptoms
Sacroiliac joint inflammation can be quite tricky to diagnose for a few reasons:
- The SI joint is not easily manipulated.
- Tests tend not to isolate just the SI joint.
- Studies are not normal.
- Other back problems can produce similar symptoms.
- Avoiding activities causing symptoms.
- Anti-inflammatory medication.
- Physical therapy.
- PRP Injections.
