Sacroiliac disease

Intro: The sacroiliac joint is the joint where the bottom of the spine (sacrum) connects to the pelvic bone. Dysfunction of the joint may be brought upon by degeneration or increased hypermobility during pregnancy.

Symptoms: Tenderness to touch and pain on certain motions of the hip.

Treatment: Medication, physical therapy, or temporary use of a pelvic belt. A steroid injection into the joint may provide relief.
