Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is a condition that occurs when there is a problem with the joint where the spine and the pelvis connect. It can cause lower back pain, hip pain, and difficulty walking or standing for long periods.
Here are some treatment options for sacroiliac joint dysfunction:
Physical therapy: A physical therapist can help with exercises that stretch and strengthen the muscles around the sacroiliac joint. Physical therapist can also help align the spine and reduce pressure on the sacroiliac joint.

Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can help reduce pain and inflammation.
Steroid injections: A doctor can inject a steroid medication directly into the sacroiliac joint to reduce inflammation and pain.
Surgery: In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to stabilize the joint and reduce pain.
It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best course of treatment for your specific situation.
