The sacroiliac (SI) joint is a joint that connects the lower spine to the pelvis. It is located on each side of the lower back, where the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) meets the ilium (the upper part of the hip bone).
Back pain and stiffness are common complaints. They can affect daily activities and quality of life. One of the possible causes of these symptoms is facet arthropathy, a form of arthritis that damages the spine.
Lower back pain (also called lumbago) is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can range from a mild ache to a severe and disabling pain that interferes with daily activities and quality of life.
Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to curve sideways, forming an S-shape or a C-shape. It can affect people of any age, but it usually develops during childhood or adolescence, when the spine is still growing.
