If your sacroiliac joint is injured or damaged, you may experience pain in the lower back, hips or buttocks. For this pain, we may recommend sacroiliac joint injections. At Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic, we offer this treatment to the residents of Longwood, Ocoee and Orlando, FL.
What is a Sacroiliac Joint Injection?
A sacroiliac joint injection is a pain management technique that involves the injection of a local anesthetic and a steroid medication into the sacroiliac joint, which is located between the bottom of the spine and the hip. When this joint is affected by injury, disease or other medical conditions, it can quickly cause pain, especially during movement. This pain can make it difficult to walk or perform other normal activities comfortably. Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic offers sacroiliac joint injections to help patients find relief from this pain.
What is a Sacroiliac Joint Injection Used to Treat?
The sacroiliac joint injection treatment is used to treat any pain that is caused by the sacroiliac joint. This includes chronic pain such as back pain that affects the lower back, or pain felt in the buttocks and hips. Sacroiliac joint injections are commonly used to treat these types of pain, which may arise from injury, disease or other conditions. The injection soothes inflammation in the area while simultaneously providing long-lasting pain relief with the steroid medication.
What Can I Expect from a Sacroiliac Joint Injection?
During the sacroiliac joint injection treatment, a small needle is inserted into the sacroiliac joint. We will ensure that you are adequately numbed for this process. Once the needle is in place, the local anesthetic and steroid medication will be injected into the joint. This will provide immediate pain relief due to the local anesthetic, although it will only last for a few hours. Pain may return briefly, but the steroid medication should take effect within a few days, producing the full results of treatment. You will need someone to drive you home after your procedure. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best approach for your sacroiliac joint injection treatment and tell you what you can expect from your treatment.
