hi i'm confused on si joint pain, how far can it travels down the leg? is the sciatica nerve close enough to the joint to be irrated by inflammation?

SI Joint Pain: can radiate down to the calf in some people. There are referred patterns down the leg via the SI Joint. Typically though SI jt pain is found locally in the buttock/pelvis area. If there is narrowing of the neuroforamen where the nerve exits then you can have sciatica like pain.
