Sacroiliitis can cause low-back and buttock pain that may radiate down the leg and into the hip. At times, it is difficult to distinguish sacroiliac (SI) joint pain from other causes of low-back pain. SI injections help us diagnose the cause of your pain.
There are two procedures that may benefit the patient suffering from sacroiliac joint pain:
A sacroiliac joint injection is performed under live fluoroscopic guidance to ensure the accuracy and safety of this procedure.
Lateral branch radiofrequency denervation is also performed under live fluoroscopic guidance to ensure the accuracy and safety of this procedure.
Similar to any other procedure or medication, there are potential risks of infection, bleeding, allergic reaction, and prolonged increases in pain. Your Center for Pain Management physician will use x-ray guidance and sterile techniques to significantly reduce these risks.
