This minimally invasive treatment is part of our comprehensive approach to pain management, providing both diagnostic clarity and therapeutic relief.


What is a Sacroiliac Joint Injection?

The sacroiliac joint is a critical linkage system between your lower spine and pelvis. Pain in this joint can be debilitating, affecting your ability to perform daily activities. A Sacroiliac Joint Injection is a procedure that delivers pain-relieving medication directly into the sacroiliac joint. The injection typically contains a corticosteroid to reduce inflammation and an anesthetic for immediate pain relief. This dual-action approach offers both short-term and long-term benefits.


Conditions Treated

Sacroiliac Joint Injections are primarily used to treat sacroiliac joint dysfunction, which can arise from a variety of causes, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Injury or trauma
  • Pregnancy-related changes
  • Mechanical stress
  • Inflammatory joint disease



Performed as an outpatient service, the Sacroiliac Joint Injection procedure includes the following steps:

  1. Preparation: The patient is positioned to allow easy access to the sacroiliac joint, and the skin over the area is cleaned.
  2. Imaging Guidance: Fluoroscopy, a type of real-time x-ray, is used to guide the needle accurately into the sacroiliac joint.
  3. Injection: A combination of anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication is injected directly into the joint.
  4. Monitoring: Post-procedure, patients are observed for a short period to ensure there are no immediate complications and to assess the relief provided by the injection.



  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic: Helps in diagnosing the source of pain and provides significant relief.
  • Targeted Relief: Directly targets the area of pain for effective treatment.
  • Minimally Invasive: Avoids the need for more invasive surgical procedures.
  • Quick Recovery: Patients can often resume their normal activities the same day or the next day.
