SI Joint Injections

Sacroiliac (SI) joint injections are a specialized form of injection therapy aimed at diagnosing and treating pain associated with the SI joint, located in the lower back where the spine meets the pelvis. This joint plays a crucial role in transmitting weight and forces between the upper body and legs, which is essential for normal walking and sitting. The injections comprise a local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication, typically administered under X-ray or ultrasound guidance to ensure precision​​.

Primarily, SI joint injections target conditions like sacroiliac joint dysfunction, which is characterized by either excessive or insufficient movement in the joint, leading to pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. They are also effective in treating arthritis-related inflammation, pain in the SI joint, and pain stemming from trauma to the area​​. The procedure generally takes less than 30 minutes, and patients can usually return home on the same day. While discomfort or pain may occur during the procedure, it’s generally well-tolerated with local anesthesia​​​​.
