What is Sacroiliac Joint Pain?

The sacroiliac (SI) joint can cause pain in the low back or buttocks. This is especially common in women, and often radiates into the leg, masquerading as sciatica. SI joint pain generally responds well to non-steroidal medications and physical therapy. Occasionally, injections into or around the joint space are necessary to completely alleviate the pain and dysfunction and clarify the diagnosis.
