This study indicated that when you have low pain in the sacroiliac joint area or swelling it is usually do to misalignments. Sometimes just an independent inflammatory condition can be related to symptoms in this area but it is 20 to 100 times more likely to be due to a misalignment.
The authors cite one study which indicated that the SIJ rotates 7 to 8 degrees on average in the sagittal plane and up to a maximum of 17 degrees.
They also indicate that movement of the posterior superior spine of the illium relative to the sacrum ranges from 4 to 8mm.
These conditions can be quite painful in some cases and can involve the sciatic nerve that runs down the back of your leg to your toes. Government studies have shown that chiropractic care is the best treatment on the planet for all types of low back condition.
