The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a joint between the sacrum and the ilium bones on either side of the pelvis. The joint’s stability depends both on strong ligaments and on the shape and orientation of the sacrum in relation to the two ilia – it’s wedged between them. The properties of these two joints are of great importance. They transfer weight from the upper body onto the lower limbs (legs). Anatomically, these are the only joints in the human body not acted on directly by muscles. The articular surfaces are rough and irregular. Sacroiliac pain can arise due to natural causes as well as trauma. Pregnancy, osteoarthritis, and arthritis are some of the leading natural causes. During pregnancy, increased body weight, gait changes, and increased ligament elasticity can all cause the joint to become unstable or shift out of place. In such cases, the rough texture of the articular surface, as well as the stretching of the joint capsule and ligaments, can lead to pain. Age related changes have to do with the ligaments losing their elasticity. This can cause stiffness and pain in the lower back and the waist, which can also radiate to the thigh or groin. Traumatic reasons for pain usually involve an uneven weight distribution between the left and right leg, which can put more strain on one sacroiliac joint than the other. Medium and high energy trauma can also dislocate the joint to a slight or severe degree, or even cause fracturing.
