What You Need to Know About Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

The sacroiliac joint joins the pelvis and the spine lower region. It has a limited range of motion, a tough ligamentous mechanism holds it in place, and can't be actively manipulated. Amphiarthrosis is the medical term for this kind of joint.

The sacroiliac joint syndrome or ISG occurs when the surfaces of the joints are tilted. This syndrome is frequently caused by incorrect joint stress, and it's more common during pregnancy, and results in pain. The sacroiliac joint may see degenerative changes as people become older, although they normally don't cause pain.

If you're suffering from pain, a visit to the chiropractor may help relieve the pain. They may suggest you to do some stretching and mobility exercises for pain relief.


The sacroiliac joint's ligamentous apparatus is often strained or compressed, resulting in ISG syndrome. Heavy lifting, bad posture, or being overweight may all create these issues. Pain is caused due to inflammatory reactions induced by this, which are transmitted to the brain through pain receptors in the spinal cord. In ISG syndrome, the pain receptors in the joint are relatively active.

In the case of ISG syndrome, the chiropractor may address the underlying causative factors, such as strain, and reduce pain receptor activity.


Sacroiliac joint pain is the most common symptom of ISG syndrome. Pain occurs most often during attacks and while twisting or bending the trunk. Those afflicted have the usual problems even while walking, after a lengthy period of physical exercise, or remaining in a specific sitting posture for an extended period.

This force the joints surface to tilt, resulting in blockage. The blockage results in ISG syndrome and pain that may extend from the lower back, down the buttocks, the back thigh, and to the knee. The symptoms associated with radiating ISG syndrome are comparable to those associated with herniated discs. During diagnosis, the chiropractor will consider these factors.

Stress in the lumbar iliopsoeal muscle causes pain in the groin and lower abdomen region in some patients.

Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor may suggest you do some physical exercises and physiotherapy for pain relief. Physical exercise is crucial for ISG syndrome treatment to be effective. Even if you have grievances, you should move sufficiently. You may do this by combining physiotherapy with specific sacroiliac joint exercises to relieve the joint pain.

Chiropractors use manual treatment to help relieve joint blockages. There are two ways to treat this.

  • Mobilization - Stretching the afflicted joint increases its mobility.
  • Manipulation - A newly developed ISG syndrome may be treated with short force effects on the afflicted joint.

Applying heat may help relieve ISG symptoms. Heat plasters, infrared lamps, or hot water bottles can be used for heat therapy.
