PAIN MANAGEMENT – SACROILIAC JOINT INJECTIONS
Sacroiliac (SI) Joints are located next to your spine and connects the sacrum, the area right above the tailbone, to the ilium, also known as your hip. Any inflammation or dysfunction in the area of this joint can cause pain. An injection into the SI joint is used to diagnose SI joint dysfunction and provide relief for lower back pain or sciatica symptoms.
How is the SI injection performed?
Once the diagnosis of SI joint dysfunction is confirmed, SI joint radiofrequency neurotomy will be administered to provide longer lasting pain relief. This procedure consists of a radiofrequency probe being inserted at the SI joint to create multiple heat lesions along the capsule.
