What Is Sacroiliitis?

Sacroilittis is a painful condition that means the sacroliliac joint (either one or both of them) is inflamed. These joints connect the lower part of the spine to the pelvis. The pain felt with this condition is very severe and is commonly felt in the buttocks, groin, thighs, or lower part of the back, usually with a radiating intensity. It is often more pronounced after standing for a long period of time, running, or by stair climbing or other rigorous back and leg movement.
