S I joint pain (low back pain)
The SI (sacroiliac) joint connects your sacrum and your ilium. The sacrum is your tailbone (lower spine), and the ilium is where you might experience lower back depression. The S I joint pain can occur through overuse- such as: running, lifting, walking, and/or sitting for long periods of time.
Let’s talk about the sign and symptoms:
- The most common complaint is that if they sit for an extended amount of time, they may have back discomfort. Similarly, holding any position for an extended amount of time might cause pain to return. Another indication or symptom is if you sleep on one side and turn to the other side, your back pains.
Traditional health care often treats S I joint pain by recommending rest or limiting your 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.
