1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not a disease at all

It is a 'disorder' not a 'disease' of the sacroiliac joint.
The sacrum (tailbone) sits between the 2 halves of the pelvis in the low back. It has 2 long joints, 1 with each half of the pelvis.If anything interferes with function of these joints: injury, malalignment, short leg syndrome, etc., inflammation can start which is very painful. A good osteopathic doc can often discern the cause & treat it.
