Pain in the sacroiliac joint can be a result of some type of trauma to the pelvis such as a fall as well as be nontraumatic like in the case of age-related degenerative changes like arthritis.

Women who have C-sections tend to get by pretty okay for the first, 5 to 10 years. They might have a little low back pain, maybe some hip pain, and they attribute it to like not losing all the weight or maybe they're pushing their body too much during exercise.

Hi, guys. I wanted to make a quick little video to help a friend out who is having some pretty bad back pain. She's about 21 or 22 weeks pregnant, and her back is just flaring up for the last three days, and it's excruciating. She thinks maybe it was her sciatic nerve or maybe she bruised her back.
