This injection procedure is performed to relieve pain caused by arthritis in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and hip bone meet. The steroid medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Your sacroiliac joints (we call them the “SI” joints) are the places where your hips meet your spine. These joints don’t have a lot of flexibility, but they do move slightly as you move your body. And if SI joints become damaged or diseased, it can be painful.

Call us to see if a sacroiliac joint block will benefit your pain condition.


Inflammation in the Sacroiliac joint can be a major source of low back painthat radiates to the buttocks and back of the thigh. Acute inflammation may result from trauma or changes in posture or gait. Chronic causes of sacroiliac joint pain includerheumatoid arthritis, ongoing stress to the joint, or osteoarthritis. Common complaint is early morning stiffness and localized tenderness.

An injection of medicine into the joint helps to relieve inflammation and decrease pain. Physical therapy including massage, exercise, and joint manipulation is important to aid in recovery.
An X-ray machine is used to visualize the joint and confirm proper needle placement.
