What is a sacroiliac joint injection, and how is it performed?
A sacroiliac joint injection, also called an SI Joint injection, is a needle-based procedure used to treat pain related to the sacroiliac joint, which causes inflammation of the sacroiliac joints of the spine.
The goal of this procedure is to use a mix of corticosteroids and anesthetic medications to decrease the inflammation of the sacroiliac joints that are causing localized pain as well as pain that can radiate into the hips.
The Board Certified Spine Specialists at OrthoNeuro are experts in SI joint injections and have helped thousands of patients return to an active and healthy lifestyle following this procedure.
At OrthoNeuro, sacroiliac joint injections are performed on an outpatient basis and take only minutes.
We also use real-time X-Ray (fluoroscopy) to ensure precise placement of the needle and the medication.
General anesthesia is not needed during this procedure and your OrthoNeuro specialist will administer mild sedation and a local anesthetic before your injection.
Little to no discomfort is experienced during or after the procedure and you are allowed to return home shortly after.
If you have been considering an SI joint injection, schedule an appointment with one of our Board Certified Spine Specialists at one of our 7 convenient locations throughout Greater Columbus.
We will evaluate your unique lifestyle and goals to determine which type of treatment is best for you.

“I recently had surgery on my lower back. I had heard that such surgery would result in pain and cause me difficulties in doing ordinary daily tasks but, I experienced no pain and was able to do normal activities at home and at church. Also, being a bee keeper, I was able to work the hives and extract the honey from most of the hives”
