Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is a common cause of chronic low back pain. Certain populations are particularly susceptible to disorders of this unique joint. Anatomically, the joint is complex, and the clinician must understand both intrinsic and extrinsic structures in its vicinity. Unfortunately, there are no particular pathognomonic findings on radiologic imaging. A cluster of physical examination findings has been recognized as demonstrating sacroiliac joint pain. Various treatment options exist in the evidence-based treatment of this condition.
