Sacroiliac Joint Injection (SI Joint)
A sacroiliac joint injection is a treatment approach for patients who are suffering from sacroiliac joint pain. Reports indicate that approximately 15-30% of individuals tend to suffer from persistent and nonspecific back pain that is due to irritation of the sacroiliac joint. Clinical trials have shown that injecting steroids into the tissue surrounding the joint or directly into the sacroiliac joint provides patients with more pain relief than placebo injections. Furthermore, the effects of the injections were reported to last for at least one month.
