Background: Sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SID) is the cause of low back pain in 15-30 percent of cases. Several studies have introduced different treatments for sacroiliac joint dysfunction that include manipulation but there is not any accepted treatment for that.Methods: The patients with low back or buttock pain, who had at least three positive diagnostic tests, did not have any other cause of low back pain in lumbosacral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and had other inclusion criteria were included to study. The patients took posterior innominate rotation and then, they did posterior innominate self-mobilization at home for 1 month. The visual analog scale (for pain) and Oswestry Disability Index (for disability measurement) were measured before intervention and 1 month after it.Findings: Thirty four subjects were evaluated for pain that 22 patients (64.70%) had pain reduction after the intervention (P < 0.05). Disability was evaluated in 29 subjects that after intervention, 23 patients (79.31%) had improvement (P < 0.05).Conclusion: Posterior innominate rotation and self-mobilization at home for 1 month could improve low back pain and ability in sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
