The connection of the sacrum and the right and left iliac (hip) bones form the sacroiliac (SI) joints. The sacrum is the triangular-shaped bone in the lower portion of the spine, centrally located below the lumbar spine.
Signs and symptoms associated with SI joint dysfunction can include
- sacroiliac joint pain,
- low back pain,
- pain in the back of the hips,
- groin pain,
- thigh pain,
- stiffness, or
- a burning sensation in the pelvis.
It can sometimes be difficult to precisely determine the location of the pain. The pain usually worsens with walking and is relieved by lying down.
