What is a Sacroiliac Joint Injection?

The sacroiliac joint connects the spine to the pelvis through the sacrum. The procedure is performed as a diagnostic and/or therapeutic injection for inflammatory joint dysfunction.

How does this procedure work?

A fluoroscopy (X-ray) machine or ultrasound is used to target the joint. The procedure may be performed under local anesthesia or monitored anesthesia care. The injection may include a steroid to reduce inflammation or PRP and/or Radiofrequency Ablation for more permanent relief.

What are the goals of this Procedure?

The goal of this procedure is to reduce pain associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Improved results are seen when combined with physical therapy. With pain reduction an improved quality of life is achieved.

How many treatments will i need?

One injection or a series of injections may be sufficient for pain relief. This treatment may also be combined with PRP or Radiofrequency for longer term relief of up to 1-2 years or permanent relief when the body’s natural regenerative cells take effect.

What is the recovery time of this procedure?

Once the procedure is complete, a band aid will be applied and the patient will be escorted to a recovery room where they will be monitored for a short time, and will be able to leave the office shortly after. Rarely, temporary extremity weakness or numbness can occur; therefore, you should have a driver attend the appointment with you to drive you home.

You will be able to ambulate after the procedure and may feel slight discomfort, so it is recommended to take it easy for 24 hours and may resume full activity the next day. Soreness around the injection site is normal and may be relieved by using ice and taking a mild analgesic. It is a good idea to keep a record of your pain level during the next few weeks. You may notice a slight increase in pain, numbness or weakness as the numbing medicine wears off and healing begins. Follow-up is usually scheduled in 1-2 weeks and immediate rehabilitation therapy is recommended to return to normal life.
