    Typically only one side will go out. I had a similiar problem back in the mid 80's and it flares up now and again, usually when I do something I shouldn't do like lifting something wrong. Often this problem is due to a stretching of the ligaments that hold the joint closed.

    I have found this to be true as well. It is important to understand that the SIJ has very little motion normally. If someone tells you that your SIJ is "stuck" or "fixated" be leary as it may be the normal SIJ and the other side may have too much motion.

    Also, some good work has been done in Sweden on the SIJ by folks by the names of Mens, Snijders and Vleeming. Their main work is looking at the SIJ in women particular as a possible problem due to being pregnant and by giving birth.

    Re: Sacaryliac joint dysfunction

    Well i have never had any children. I beleive i can trace my problem back to 1997 when i fell on my tailbone at work. Thought i recoverd. Then fell again in 1999 at work on my tailbone. Then last summer while lifting a heavy rubber floor mat i twisted while lifting and felt a pulling snesation in right side. Thats when all my pain started really bad. Wasted 5 monthes being treated by neurosurgeon who put me in pt on pelvic traction for around 3 months. Sent me back to work and i got worse. Used to have days when there was no pain. Now i never am out of pain. I will start doing the manual rounds as suggested in kalindras site . Over the weekend my left sij started spasming real bad. Haven't had that pain for quite a while but now its back. What type of specialist should i look for if this continues?

    Re: Sacaryliac joint dysfunction

    Sounds like it was the lifting and twisting the got the problem really going. That is what happened in my case.

    As far as the spasms, one of the main muscles to fire up with this kind of problem is the piriformis muscle, you may want to look into it.

    What helped me the most was finding a chiropractor who understood the function of the SIJ. He used blocks under my pelvis to realign the joint. It's called sacro occiput technique. I am sure there is some info on the internet. Also I wore a special belt around my pelvis for a couple of weeks. He said that it would keep the joint in place until the ligaments heal. There are no muscles to keep the joint closed but only the ligaments.
