Sacroiliac joint injection

What is a Sacroiliac joint injection?

The Sacroiliac Joint injection is performed under fluoroscopy for accuracy. Once the needle has entered the sacroiliac joint, a special contrasting chemical is injected into the joint to ensure proper needle placement and proper spread of medication.

Also called a sacroiliac joint block, it is primarily used either to diagnose or treat low back pain and/or sciatica symptoms associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

Reasons for the procedure

The sacroiliac joints lie next to the spine and connect the sacrum with the hip on both sides. There are two sacroiliac joints, one on the right and one on the left. Joint inflammation and/or dysfunction in this area can cause pain. The purpose of a sacroiliac joint injection is two-fold: to diagnose the source of a patient's pain, and to provide therapeutic pain relief.
