In brief: SI joint dysfunction
It depends on the cause.
Some cases are related to formed of arhthritis. Some are due to posture or trauma. You may wished to be checked by someone certified in prolotherapy. Look that up on the net and discuss it with your health provider.

In brief: Maybe
Pt to work on pelvic stabilizing muscles will often work, and an injection can help with acute flares.
A more lasting solution that some pain docs are doing involves "burning" or ablating the nerves that supply the si joint.

In brief: Potentially
There is the possibility of performing an si joint fusion when the pain is not responsive to conservative, non-operative measures.
I personally do not perform this procedure as there is limitied data to support it, ; however, there have been many anecdotal cases of good to excellent results.
