Sacroiliac Joint Pain
What Causes Sacroiliac Joint Pain?
There are several causes of Sacroiliac Joint Pain. One such cause are traumatic injuries. Traumatic injuries to the Sacroiliac Joint are caused when there is a sudden impact which ‘jolts’ the joint. A common example is landing on the buttocks. This kind of injury usually causes damage to the ligaments which support the joint. Other causes include hormonal changes, which most notably during pregnancy can cause sacroiliac pain. In preparation for giving birth, the ligaments of the pelvis especially increase in laxity. Combining this with an increase in weight putting extra strain on the spine, may lead to mechanical changes which can result in pain. Other potential causes of sacroiliac joint pain include leg length discrepancy, a twisted pelvis and inflammatory joint disease.
