Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Injection

If you have SI (sacroiliac) joint pain, then you are well aware of the sharp, stabbing pains that can shoot through your body, usually originating from your lower back, buttocks, leg or thigh. It’s a sudden, debilitating pain that can prevent you from being active, and living your life to the fullest. If you have tried temporary pain relief, and found that it isn’t enough, then it may be time to consider longer lasting, more total pain relief, such as a SI joint injection, which we can offer you at Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW.

The sacroiliac (SI) joint injection – also called a sacroiliac joint block – is a non-surgical option that relieves chronic pain from the sacroiliac joint. To relieve pain and inflammation, the SI joint injection contains a corticosteroid medication, which provides pain relief over an extended period of time. This procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, and you will feel pain relief in 2 to 4 days, and it should last for several months.

A SI Joint Injection may provide pain relief, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Lower back – usually only on one side (or leg pain) that is sharp or stabbing
  • Discomfort when bending or standing after sitting for long periods
  • Thigh and/or buttock pain that possibly radiates down the sciatic nerve
  • Radiating numbness or a tingling sensation from the lower spine to the back of the leg
  • Pain may improve when lying down

At Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW, we will develop a specific and personalized treatment plan to relieve your chronic SI joint pain. Don’t suffer with pain daily – we have an effective and proven solution to bring you lasting relief.
