Pain in the Sacroiliac Joint aka SI Joint can be felt in the lower back and/or down your legs. The SI Joint connects your hip bones to the sacrum, this is the triangular bone between the lumbar spine and the tailbone. The primary function of these joints are to absorb shock between your upper body, pelvis and legs with the support of your glute maximus and your piriformis muscle.
The pain is very similar to Lumbar Disc Herniation(Sciatica) so it's very difficult to differentiate between the two.
