Sacroiliac joint pain is one of the most common causes of low back pain in pregnant women. We present a case of a 30-year-old G2P1 at 20 weeks gestation presenting with intractable low back pain refractory to conservative management. History and physical examination revealed sacroiliac joint as the pain generator. We elected to do an ultrasound-guided sacroiliac joint injection that significantly abated her pain. This article aims to review the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment approaches to adequately manage sacroiliac joint pain in pregnant women.
