The movements of the sacroiliac joint



The movements of the sacroiliac joint



Acta Anatomica 23(1): 80-91



Sacro-iliac movements were examined in living subjects by a special radiographic method. It was found that The maximum, constant, ventral movement of the promontory (5.6 [plus or minus]1.4 mm) takes place during the change of position from recumbency to standing. Less consistent movements over a shorter range occur during extension and flexion of the trunk. Displacement of the sacrum is occasionally in a straight line, but mostly it is angular. The angular movement takes place about an axis situated most commonly 5-10 cm vertically below the sacral promontory. No difference in the range of movement was detected in males and females except during the puerperal state. Differences in the range of movement cannot be correlated with the height, weight or sacral curve index of the individual.
