SI joint pain will be felt in your lower back and the butt. Usually, this pain is the result of any damage or injury to the joint that is located between your spine and hip.
It’s to be understood that the SI joint pain can mimic some other conditions like a herniated disc or a hip problem. This makes it important for the patient to get diagnosed accurately so as to start the proper treatment.
When you have an SI joint dysfunction, pain can be caused by the inflammation of the joint. This will be commonly felt on one of the sides of your lower back to the right/left of the midline where your joint is located.
When your SI joint dysfunction is very severe, you can feel the pain in your hip. The pain can also refer to the other regions like groin, butt, and back of the thighs.
