In brief: Yes but...

The definition and causes of sacroiliac joint pain or dysfunction is very broad and can be due to many different things.
Musculoskeletal etiologies are common but that can be due to muscular, bony, ligamentous, tendon problems. Depending on the cause and severity of your pain you may need an MRI of the hip to detect the specific cause in order to get the correct treatment.
