Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injections

The Center for Pain Management uses sacroiliac joint steroid injections (or sacroiliac joint injections) as a pain management treatment option to relieve chronic back pain.

The sacroiliac facet joints are small joints in the region of the low back and buttocks where the pelvis joins with the spine. When these joints become painful, they may cause pain in the low back, abdomen, groin, buttocks or legs.

A sacroiliac joint steroid injection serves many purposes. First, by placing numbing medicine into the joint, the amount of immediate pain relief experienced by the patient will help confirm or deny the joint as a source of pain. Additionally, the temporary relief of the numbing medicine may better allow a physician or physical therapist to treat that joint.
