What is the Sacroiliac Joint
The sacroiliac joint is next to the bottom of the spine. It is below the low back part of the spine and above the tailbone. It connects the sacrum with the pelvis. It is a very strong joint and is reinforced with ligaments that surround it. It does not have much motion. If there is a strong force placed on the leg it can go through the SI joint causing injury.
Injury to the sacroiliac joint many times mimics back pain. There can be pain in the low back and pain in the legs. There is no specific diagnostic test to diagnose a sacroiliac joint injury. Many times a diagnosis is made after an injection of medicine is made into the SI joint. If the person gets immediate relief from pain the doctor many times recognizes that the injury is to the sacroiliac joint and not the back.
