SI Joint Injection

What is the SI Joint Injection?

A sacroiliac joint injection (SI) - also called a sacroiliac joint block - is used to either diagnose or treat low back pain and/or sciatica symptoms.

Where is the SI Joint located?

The sacroiliac joint is located next to the spine and connects the sacrum with the hip on both sides.

Joint inflammation and/or dysfunction in this area can cause pain.

How is the SI Joint injection performed?

During the procedure, the skin is numbed with anesthetic. Then, using a fluoroscope, an X-ray is used to guide a small needle into the joint. A small mixture of numbing medication (anesthetic) and anti-inflammatory medication are then injected.

This 20-30 minute procedure is very effective in reducing inflammation of the joint and providing substantial to complete pain relief for an extended period of time.
