Sacroiliitis or Low Back Pain and its Treatment

What is Sacroiliitis?

The SI joint (sacroiliac) joins your sacrum and ilium. The sacrum is your tailbone (lower spine), and the ilium is where you may feel lower back pain. Sacroiliitis can be caused by overuse of the SI joint, such as jogging, lifting, walking, and/or sitting for extended periods of time.


Let’s look at the indications and symptoms of sacroiliitis. The most prevalent complaint is that if they sit for a lengthy period of time, they may have back pain. Similarly, retaining any position for a lengthy period of time may result in soreness returning. Another sign or symptom is back discomfort if you sleep on one side and turn to the other.

Traditional health care often treats SI joint discomfort by recommending rest or limiting activities. To reduce inflammation, apply heat or ice to the joint. Pain medication to relieve your discomfort, joint injections to clear the inflammation from the joint, and, in the worst-case situation, surgery to fuse the joint.
