SACROILIAC JOINT INJECTIONS
Our NJ pain management center has extensive experience administering sacroiliac joint injections, sometimes called sacroiliac joint blocks, to diagnose and treat pain in the sacroiliac joints. When there is too much or too little movement in the sacroiliac joints, located at the bottom of the spine, back pain or leg pain can occur.
WHAT ARE SACROILIAC JOINT INJECTIONS?
A sacroiliac joint injection is performed under X-Ray for guidance to ensure proper needle placement and dispersion of medication. In most cases, the steroid injection will start working 3-5 days after the initial injection and effects will last several weeks or a few months.

WHO CAN GET SACROILIAC JOINT INJECTIONS?
Sacroiliac joint injections are used to confirm a diagnosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction or to treat pain associated with a confirmed diagnosis. The treatment is performed with patients lying face-down, with a local anesthetic administered for comfort.
