The nerves that go to the sacroiliac joint also go to the surrounding muscles, specifically the dorsal branches of S1-S2 and the ventral branches of L4 to S2 with occasionally S3 and rarely L3, but most commonly L4 to L5 and the superior gluteal nerve (L4 to S1) .
However, since there are different studies finding multiple variations, the exact innervation is unclear .
Additionally, even within the same individual, the right and left sides may have different innervation P434.
