Discover the benefits of Sacroiliac Joint Injection for pain relief at CFIPain. Effective treatment for low back, buttocks, and leg pain.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

Sacroiliac Joint Injection is a highly effective treatment designed to reduce pain and inflammation in the sacroiliac joint. This minimally invasive procedure targets the sacroiliac joint, providing significant relief for conditions such as low back pain, buttocks pain, and leg pain. At CFIPain, we utilize this advanced technique to help our patients achieve improved mobility and a higher quality of life.

What is Sacroiliac Joint Injection?

Sacroiliac Joint Injection involves the injection of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid directly into the sacroiliac joint, which is located at the junction of the spine and the pelvis. This joint is responsible for transferring weight and forces between the upper body and the legs. Inflammation or dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint can lead to significant pain and discomfort. By delivering medication directly to the affected area, Sacroiliac Joint Injection helps to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

How Does Sacroiliac Joint Injection Work?

The primary mechanism of Sacroiliac Joint Injection is the delivery of anti-inflammatory medication to the joint. The local anesthetic provides immediate pain relief by numbing the area, while the corticosteroid reduces inflammation and provides longer-lasting relief. This combination helps to improve joint function, reduce pain, and enhance overall mobility.

Conditions Treated with Sacroiliac Joint Injection

Sacroiliac Joint Injection is used to treat various conditions that cause pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs, including:

• Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction: This condition occurs when the sacroiliac joint becomes inflamed or loses its normal function, leading to pain and stiffness in the lower back and buttocks.

• Sacroiliitis: Inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, often caused by arthritis, injury, or infection. Sacroiliac Joint Injection can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

• Low Back Pain: Chronic or acute low back pain that originates from the sacroiliac joint can be effectively managed with Sacroiliac Joint Injection.

• Buttocks Pain: Pain in the buttocks region, often referred from the sacroiliac joint, can be relieved through targeted injection therapy.

• Leg Pain: Referred pain that radiates from the sacroiliac joint to the legs can be alleviated with Sacroiliac Joint Injection, improving overall mobility and function.
