What is the Sacroiliac Joint?
The Sacroiliac joint (SI joint) is made up of the sacrum and pelvis bones (Ilium). We have two SI joints, a right and left. The joint is designed to absorb and distribute stress and weight in the standing position. The SI joints are a common source of pain. The joints can be affected with repetitive stress (running), poor posture, daily wear and tear, subluxation, and sprain of the ligaments supporting the SI Joint. Sacroiliac joint pain can sometimes be difficult to isolate and diagnosis. It is important to seek proper care, such as chiropractic, if you suspect Sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
