Are Sacroiliac Joint Injections Right for Me?November 15, 2018
The sacroiliac joints are located at the base of your spine. They can cause pain as a result of trauma or arthritis. When it is out of place or alignment, it is one of the most painful conditions you can experience. Arthritis of the SI joints will show up on x-ray. The injection procedure is done under x-ray and usually a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication is used. Usually relief is experienced almost immediately.
The procedure is outpatient, which means you can simply walk out of the clinic after the therapy to allow you to recover at home. This prevents the high cost of hospital fees. This procedure is covered by most insurances.
