Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection

Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection is both diagnostic procedure and treatment used to relieve low back and buttock pain. A local anesthetic and a corticosteroid are injected into one or both sacroiliac joints (they connect the spine to the hip bones) – or the surrounding ligaments – to reduce inflammation and swelling inside the joint space. This may help alleviate the pain associated with injury or disease to the sacroiliac joint, including sciatica symptoms.
