In brief: Possibly

General weight training and core strengthening can certainly help with pain in the sacroiliac joint area.
On the other hand, it may worsen the pain. Regardless, it likely won't harm the joint. If the pain doesn't get better or worsens, you really need to see a physiatrist or other musculoskeletal/spine specialist. There are certain conditions a rheumatologist can manage for sacroiliac joint pa.
