Your Personalized Path to Sacroiliac Joint Pain Relief in Atlanta, GA

Sacroiliac Joint Injections

Sacroiliac joint injections, also known as SI joint injections, are primarily used to diagnose and treat lower back pain and sciatica symptoms associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction. The sacroiliac joints are located at the bottom of the back, where the sacrum (base of the spine) connects to the ilium (part of the hip bone).

The injection serves two main purposes: diagnostic and therapeutic. If the patient experiences significant pain relief following the injection, it can be confirmed that the sacroiliac joint is the source of the pain. Therapeutically, the steroid medication can reduce inflammation and pain for a longer period, often several months.

Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to providing personalized care and understanding the unique needs of every patient. Sacroiliac joint injections are an effective tool in our arsenal, delivering immediate and long-term relief by reducing inflammation directly at the source.

At The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Center, we believe in empowering our patients through knowledge and quality care. Don't let pain hold you back any longer - schedule an appointment with our experienced team today and begin your journey towards a pain-free life.

Expert Care for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction in Atlanta, GA

Alleviating Persistent Sacroiliac Joint Pain with Sacroiliac Joint Injections

Sacroiliac joint injections are a targeted treatment for individuals experiencing lower back, buttock, or upper leg pain caused by issues with the sacroiliac joint. This joint connects the spine and pelvis and can cause significant discomfort and limited mobility when inflamed or dysfunctional. Our injections, consisting of anesthetic, steroid, and anti-inflammatory medication, provide immediate and long-term relief. If you're looking for effective pain management for sacroiliac joint-related pain, our sacroiliac joint injections can help.

The symptoms of Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction can vary greatly among individuals but commonly include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Buttock pain
  • Hip or upper leg pain
  • Sciatica-like symptoms, including radiating pain down the legs
  • Difficulty standing or walking due to increased pain
  • Difficulty turning over in bed

The treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction involves the administration of sacroiliac joint injections. Here's what you can expect from the procedure:

  • The procedure is non-invasive and performed in an outpatient clinic.
  • Injections are administered under X-ray or ultrasound guidance to ensure accuracy and precision.
  • The injected solution consists of an anesthetic for immediate pain relief, a steroid for long-term relief, and an anti-inflammatory medication to reduce inflammation in the joint.

Sacroiliac joint injections offer several benefits, including:

  • Dual function: The injections serve both a diagnostic and therapeutic purpose. If the pain subsides post-injection, it confirms the SI joint as the source of the problem.
  • Non-invasive: The procedure is minimally invasive, reducing the risks associated with more complex surgical interventions.
  • Quick relief: Many patients report immediate pain relief following the procedure.
  • Long-term benefits: The injection's steroid component can relieve pain for several months, helping improve the patient's quality of life.

Our commitment at The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Center is to provide effective, personalized treatments that help our patients regain control of their lives. Contact us today to learn more about how sacroiliac joint injections could be the solution to your pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if sacroiliitis is left untreated?

 If left untreated, sacroiliitis can lead to chronic pain and potentially cause disability. It may also lead to changes in gait or posture to avoid pain, which could result in other health issues.

What is the recommended aftercare for sacroiliac joint pain?

The best way to manage SIJ pain is to stick to a care plan, which may include rest, icing the affected area, and doing specific exercises. The quicker these steps are followed, the sooner symptoms will improve, or the injury will heal.
