There are many treatments, starting eith cold compresses, and nsaids (like ibuprofen); there are also topical nsaids (like voltaren (diclofenac) gel.
) physical therapy sometimes helps, and in severe cases, an ultrasound guided injection into the area is done.

In brief: Various

Treatments for sacroiliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction: SIJ belt, yoga for back, soft mattress, prolotherapy, & fusion in severe cases.
Aquatherapy best way to exercise low back & pelvis. Prevention includes avoidance of obesity & multiple childbirths, avoid lifting & torsion motions, & staying off unstable platforms; since pratfalls can cause permanent SIJ injury.
