Sacroiliac Joint Injections

What is a Sacroiliac Joint Injection?
A SJI is designedto diagnose and treat pain and inflammation fromsacroiliac joint dysfunction. Eithertoo much or too little movement inone of the sacroiliac joints, which are located at the bottom of the spineon each side of the sacrum, can cause lower back pain and/or leg pain.
How does it work?
An injection in the sacroiliac joint usually has two goals: to confirm thesacroiliac joint as the source of the pain, and to alleviate that pain.The procedure begins with the patient lying ontheir stomach aninjection of alocal anesthetic.Then, using fluoroscopy (XRayguidance), an anesthetic is slowly injected thesacroiliac joint to delivermedicine directly to the source of pain.If the local anesthetic providesimmediate pain relief, it diagnoses the sacroiliac joint as the source ofthe patient’s pain.
