Sacroiliac pain refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint, which is usually felt in the very lower of your back just above your hip joint. It can be one sided or unilateral. It is a common and often overlooked and poorly understood cause of pain. I believe it’s something that can often be treated very successfully when the sacroiliac joint is properly understood.


Sacroiliac pain is usually caused by irritation to the sacroiliac joint, this can either be after a fall or bike crash or it can be caused by an imbalance in the muscles pulling on the joint. Sacroiliac pain is extremely common in unilateral sports like football where one foot is always preferred, or it can be pulled by sports like swimming or cycling.  It can also be present after pregnancy due to the hormone, relaxin, making the joint more mobile and the pressure of a baby on top.

Did you know that sacroiliac pain can often be fixed with exercise? After taking a good case history of events and a few tests to look at the pelvic alignment, you will then be given a personalised exercise program to both ease the pressure on the joint and help correct the imbalance in the muscles surrounding it.


From my many years’ experience of working in back pain rehabilitation of clients, Sacroiliac joint pain has been something, so far, I have always been able to fix very quickly. To date, I’ve been successful with all my clients/patients recovering relatively quickly with a few exercises and a little home equipment.
