    The SI joints connect the sacrum at the base of the spine with the hip bone. These joints also protect the lowest motion segment of the spine, L5-S1, through their limited motion and the very strong ligaments that interconnect with the L5-S1 segment.

    Prolotherapy injections for back pain are typically given in the ligaments and joint spaces of the lower back and/or pelvis.
