Many people suffer from some form of pain daily—whether it’s an old sports injury or new aches and pains that come with age. With discomfort or pain in the back, in particular, it’s vitally important it gets diagnosed and treated properly. If not, the pain could remain unresolved, persisting, and perhaps worsening for years.
There are a plethora of different types of pain in the back, and because that region of the body is so large and involved in so many day-to-day activities, it can be difficult to know exactly what kind of pain is occurring and for what reason.

Experiencing any of these symptoms (individually or in combination with each other) is cause for concern. Luckily, there are ways to understand better what causes SI joint pain and subsequently ways to combat it.
