You have not mentioned your age,As after 40 one gets degenerative changes in the joints leading to stiffness of the joints giving rise to pain.
As there is tenderness at si joint it may be due to trauma.
You can do back extension exercise,slow walking,swimming etc which keep your joint flexible and less pain.
You can do hot fomentation at the joint and apply local pain reliever cream.
ok and bye.
