This condition refers to the pain in the sacroiliac joint (S-I joint) area and is usually caused by too much motion or too little motion. The sacroiliac joint joins the sacrum (lower part of the spine) to the pelvis. This joint can get inflamed and can be extremely painful; it can also cause numbness and tingling symptoms down the leg. Until recently, Sacroiliac problems have been difficult to diagnose but with the use of steroid injections it is easier to differentiate between S-I symptoms and herniated disc symptoms.
