What is Sacroiliitis?
Sacroiliitis is a severe inflammatory condition affecting joints in the pelvis called the sacroiliac joints. These joints connect your lower spine to the pelvis and support much of the bodies weight. When the joints are strained, an uncontrolled level of inflammation develops causing constant pain, swelling and muscle spasms.
Pain and Symptoms of
Sacroiliits is extremely painful where even the slightest movements like rolling over, walking, standing or sitting can be excruciating. The pain may often travel from the buttocks to the hamstrings, mimicking symptoms of sciatica or a herniated disc. Sacroiilitis can occur without any warning or from traumatic events like falls or accidents. Usually there is an underlying issue of poor posture or poor ergonomics that coexists with sacroiliitis.
