The pelvis and spine are connected by two small sacroiliac (SI) joints. When one or both of these joints becomes inflamed or irritated, that’s called sacroiliitis – a condition that can cause pain in the lower back, buttocks, and groin. Pain is often worse during single-limb activities (like walking, stair-climbing, or getting in and out of a car) or after prolonged sitting and standing.
Sacroiliitis can cause a loss of mobility. With treatment, however, most people are able to return to their normal daily routine.
