What is Sacroiliac Joint?

The sacroiliac joint is the point where the spine connects to the pelvis. Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome causes pain in the sacroiliac joint and in the lower back and legs. Sometimes Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome is referenced to as Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

The Sacroiliac Joint Is Unique

The Sacroiliac joint has several characteristics that make it stand out from other joints in the human body. It is very limited in the amount of motion it can perform, its full range of motion is less that 20 degrees.

The sacroiliac joint is very difficult to dislocate. It is also one of the few joints in the human body that is bicondylar. A bicondylar joint has two surfaces that move and work together to produce the joint’s motion.
