Sacroiliac Joint

I have low back/buttock pain. I have had scans showing arthritic/inflammatory issues. One doctor said that I have Inflammatory Spondylopathy. Another doctor ordered an x-ray of my pelvis and noted in his report "limited SI joint disease". He said that there isn't any problem. My question is, could this be Sacroiliitis?  What does he mean by "limited SI joint disease"?

Dear Friend,
What you have said is correct.Limited SI joint disease points towards the joint inflamation (inflammation) , which means Sacro-illitis.
Basic treatment is rest, painkillers and Hot fomentation.
Please don't get confused with the terminology. It just requires rest.
2 weeks of rest would be sufficient or the relief.
In case of pain not subsiding, with this treatment, please let me know as then we have to do some blood tests.
Regards
