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. The join can become ‘locked’ or be too mobile, leading to problems with surrounding structures such as ligaments and muscles, which means SIJ problems can cause a wide range of symptoms throughout the lower back and buttocks, or even the thigh or groin. What are the Symptoms of SI Joint Injury?
Pain located either to the left or right of your lower back. The pain can range from an ache to a sharp pain which can restrict movement. The pain may radiate out into your buttocks and low back and will often radiate to the front into the groin. Occasionally it is responsible for pain in the testicles among males. Knee pain has been felt alongside the more common symptoms too. Traumatic injuries to the SIJ are caused when there is a sudden impact which ‘jolts’ the joint. A common example is falling onto the buttocks or landing hard on one leg after jumping.
