Answer
Hi, Johny,

Start by reading my write-up on S-I Joint Pain. | http://lawrencegoldsomatics.blogspot.com/2011/04/understanding-sacro-iliac-joint

Your question on HLA B27 is outside my scope of practice.

Once you've doing the reading, contact me and I'll get you started with exercises that normalize the situation.
