Sacroiliac Joint Injections
Sacroiliac joint injections is a procedure that helps to relieve back and buttock pain, due to inflammation in the joint. The sacroiliac joint is in the buttocks area where the lumbosacral spine joins the pelvis. There is one joint on each side and these can cause pain in the back or buttocks if the joint is inflamed.
How Does it Work?
Corticosteroid is a strong anti-inflammatory medicine that can reduce the inflammation in the joint. The corticosteroid is injected, along with a local anesthetic medicine (like Novocaine) to provide immediate joint numbing and pain relief.
