SI Joint help for active person

Hi everyone, hope everyone is having as pain free day as they can. Looking for help with my Right SIJ.

Background, 37M with an athletic background (not weight lifting background), started strength training program with a lot of hip dominant exercises (cross fit and olympic weight lifting) 2 years ago, developed RSIJ pain, xray showed R sacroilitis + 2 mm R hip shift. Physical therapist said my core shut down, lower back was too tight, hip flexors were tight, similar to anterior pelvic tilt syndrome. It took me a solid 5 months to get back to baseline to running, tennis, and calisthenics. During this time, I also developed L patellofemoral syndrome that was corrected with VMO exercises.

It looks like I am having another flare up after a few weeks of more exercise that I usually get. Movements that that cause pain at the R SIJ location:

- Lunge or step up involving me to push off my right foot.

- Single leg deadlift, on contraction to bring my body vertical, there's localized pain right at the R SIJ. 

- I can do ass to grass squats, but I'm afraid to do them because I've noticed I might get some soreness in the R SIJ the next day. This is the same issue with kettlebell swings. 

I have an appointment with physical therapist tomorrow but was wondering if anyone had similar movement patterns that caused this pain and was able to resolve it? Thanks.
