Sacroiliac joint blockade

A blockade to the sacroiliac joint (= iliac-sacral joint) triggers pain that is radiating to the pelvis and the hip. If the lateral joint spaces inside the pelvis are moving – because of a fall, a haphazard or due to overloading — it can lead to an acute blockade of the joint.

A sacroiliac joint dysfunction can also result from a strong and long-term muscle tension, pregnancy, wrong posture and/or overload etc. These dysfunctions often cause annoying pain that may radiate as far as to the knee.
