Sacroiliac joint pain, also known as Sacroilitis or sacroiliac joint dysfunction, is a common arthritis-like condition causing pain in the lower back, buttocks, groin, and legs. Your sacroiliac joints (we call them the “SI” joints) are the places where your hips meet your spine. These joints don’t have a lot of flexibility, but they do move slightly as you move your body. And if SI joints become damaged or diseased, it can be painful. Your healthcare provider will work with you to diagnose and treat your sacroiliac joint pain.
