The function of the SI joints is to allow torsional or twisting movements when we move our legs. The concept of the SIJ causing lower back pain is now pretty well understood. However, due to the complex anatomy and movement patterns at the joints and area in general, evaluation and treatment of sacroiliac dysfunctions is still controversial. SIJ dysfunction is a term which is commonly used when talking about sacroiliac injuries.

Combining this with an increase in weight putting extra strain on the spine, may lead to mechanical changes which can result in pain.
