Sacroiliitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the sacroiliac joint. This joint is located at the base of the spine, where the sacrum meets the pelvis.
This condition can be caused by trauma from a car accident or a fall on the buttocks. An inflammatory condition such as arthritis can also cause sacroiliitis.
Pregnant women can suffer from sacroiliitis. During pregnancy, the stretching of the ligaments makes the joint a little more mobile and this can cause pain.
Sacroiliitis is a very common condition. Pain is usually increased by movement in the acute phase, but improved by it afterwards.
Sacroiliitis can produce, but is not limited to, pain in the buttock area and lower back, that may radiate into the legs. The pain increases with standing or sitting for long periods of time and also increases during periods of activity such as climbing stairs and running. A feeling of stiffness in the lower back and hips is common in the morning.
