From sitting to standing to climbing stairs to running, your sacroiliac joints take a lot of wear and tear every day.
Located between the sacrum (tail bone) and the ilium (hip bone), the sacroiliac joints connect the spine to the hips. The two joints not only provide stability and support to the area, but also absorb much of the impact when walking, running, climbing, lifting.
When you experience sacroiliac joint pain, you will feel it in your lower back and buttocks and is caused when the joint area is damaged either through injury, overuse, or wear. Pregnancy and childbirth can also be cause for sacroiliac joint pain.
