Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection
Compassionate Care For Patients Seeking Pain Relief
What is it?
Sacroiliac joint steroid injections, also known as sacroiliac joint blocks, are a minimally invasive treatment option performed to relieve pain in the sacroiliac joint. This joint, located where the spine and hip bone meet, can become painful due to injury, pregnancy, overuse, and arthritis and/or degeneration. The steroid-anesthetics mix from the injection can reduce swelling and inflammation in the sacroiliac joint.
What conditions can a sacroiliac joint steroid injection be used to treat?
- Arthritis pain in the sacroiliac joint
- Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
How does the procedure work?
A sacroiliac joint steroid injection involves the injection of a steroid-anesthetics mix directly into the affected joint under the guidance of fluoroscopy or ultrasound. This bathes the painful area in medication, which can provide pain relief and improve mobility for the patient. Research shows that this procedure can also have longer-lasting benefits by reducing inflammation and providing tissue healing.
