Sacroiliac Joint Pain
The role of the sacroiliac joint is to act as a shock absorber for the back. However, when put under too much pressure it can become inflamed and cause pain through the lower back radiate to the groin and pelvis. People sometimes feel spasms in one or both of their buttocks.
Avoiding hyper-extending when exercising and increasing your core stability and flexibility are just a few ways to prevent sacroiliac joint pain. Wearing Supacore patented Coretech compression shorts or leggings during exercise will also assist with pain reduction and assist with sacroiliac stability- as they are designed with a sacroiliac belt built in, to absorb the shock and support your core.
