HOW TO PERFORM THE FORTIN FINGER TEST

Simply place your finger directly on the area of your pain with ONE FINGER two times.

According to the results of this study, if you point to the exact spot where the sacroiliac joint is located (right or left) each time, your pain is likely coming from the SI joint. See diagram below for location of sacroiliac joints.

The SI joints are located immediately below and to the inside of the posterior superior iliac spines, which feel like small boney bumps on each side of your lower back. Either side can be painful.
