This painful condition is similar to sciatica in its usual symptoms. There is often pain in the legs and buttocks,as well as general lower back pain. The difference is that the pain originates from the dysfunctional joint,which can then refer pain down the leg. This is sometimes called false sciatica. The joint is not actually irritating the sciatic nerve which does occur in true sciatica.
The sacroiliac joints support the entire weight of the upper body when we are erect,which places a large amount of stress across them. This can lead to wearing of the cartilage of these joints,resulting in inflammation. Sacroiliac Joint Pain may be the result of many injuries or disease processes. Arthritis,postural problems,trauma to the hip,improper lifting,or chronic dynamic bending and twisting (such as those involved in sports activities) are all possible causes of pain in this joint.
