The sacroiliac joint lies between the sacrum ( at the bottom of the lumbar spine) and the pelvis. Dysfunction here can cause a number of symptoms including pain in the buttock, sometimes radiating into the groin and down the leg.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can go undetected for a considerable period of time, and as such further dysfunctions can occur as the body tries to compensate for the poor biomechanics. It is important that the correct starting point for treatment is found. Realignment of the Sacroiliac joint will usually involve muscle energy techniques, core exercises and kinetic chain work.
