The sacroiliac joints are the joints formed by the connection of the sacrum and iliac bones in the pelvis. These joints go through frequent wear and tear because they are major weight-bearing joints in our bodies. Eventually, they deteriorate over time. Cartilage in these joints can become thinner and less supportive.
Causes and Symptoms of SI Joint Dysfunction
SI Joint Dysfunction is the resulting factor of arthritis in the joints. These joints are used heavily throughout our life, and wear down significantly. Traumatic injuries to the spine or joints may also lead to more rapid SI Joint Dysfunction. Symptoms of pain in the lower back and the back of the hips are the most common complaints with this condition.
