Believed to be responsible for 15-30% of lower back pain cases, the sacroiliac (SI) joint connects the hip bones to the sacrum, which is the triangular bone positioned between the spine and tailbone (Spine-Health). While the SI joint has very little motion, its primary function is to absorb the shock between the upper body and the pelvis and legs. Ligaments and other soft tissues provide support for the SI joint, as well as the gluteus maximus and piriformis muscles. Yet, there are various factors that cause pain and discomfort in the SI joint, leading to sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Some of these are discussed below.


In some cases of SI joint dysfunction, an individual’s manner of walking causes uneven pressure to be placed on the pelvis. This stride or pace is known as gait, and differences in leg length as well as scoliosis can affect a person’s walking style. Ultimately, the SI joint suffers wear and tear over time, and individuals experience pain.


Weight gain, hormonal changes and loosening ligaments around the SI joint during pregnancy can lead to SI joint pain and dysfunction. In some instances, these symptoms continue post-pregnancy.

Repetitive Movements, Activities and Sports

While SI joint dysfunction can occur suddenly, as a result of a traumatic event or injury, other cases develop gradually over time. For athletes or those that perform hard labor and repetitive motions, the result of repeated stress on the sacroiliac joint can cause pain and discomfort.

You Have Various Options When It Comes to SI Joint Pain and Dysfunction

When it comes to sacroiliac joint pain and dysfunction, patients are met with various options, including personalized treatment protocols developed by Dr. Dehdari at the Advanced Healing Institute. Given his extensive understanding of human anatomy, Dr. Dehdari may assume a traditional approach to treatment that combines rest, chiropractic manipulation and/or cortisone injections.

In turn, as a certified Radiologist with a subspecialty in musculoskeletal radiology and interventional procedures, Dr. Dehdari offers regenerative medicinal treatments using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to effectively relieve SI joint pain and maximize healing.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.
