With nonop care: Most of these are self limiting as this joint will frequently fuse on its own. Anti-inflammatory medication and injections to this joint with radio frequency lesioning can also be of value. Sometimes, after a pelvis fracture there can be an instability that may require surgical stabilization.

Therapy: Si joint dysfunction is common and typically responds well to physical therapy or chiropractic care. If the pain is severe, a si joint block may reduce the pain enough to begin pt. Check out spine-health.Com.
