What are Sacroiliac Joint Injections?
What are the Benefits of Sacroiliac Joint Injections?
Issues with the sacroiliac joint of the hip decreases your capacity to walk, bend, turn and perform other movements that are necessary for your daily routine. Sacroiliac joint injections are typically recommended when traditional therapies do not produce the anticipated relief from chronic pain.
Am I a Candidate for Sacroiliac Joint Injections?
You may be a candidate for sacroiliac joint injections if you are being treated for a hip joint disorder and not responding well to more conservative therapies, such as medications. We will evaluate your case during the consultation to determine if sacroiliac joint injections are the best option for your chronic pain.
How are Sacroiliac Joint Injections Performed?
At Texas Pain Institute, we use advanced imaging technology to guide a thin needle to the sacroiliac joint area. We administer the medication that contains a combination of steroids for inflammation and anesthesia to provide immediate pain relief. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes, and more complex cases may take longer.
What is the Recovery Like After Sacroiliac Joint Injections?
You may notice a decrease in your pain immediately after the injections due to the numbing agent in the medication. No downtime is needed, but we may recommend some limitations to your activities for the first few days.
What is the Prognosis After Sacroiliac Joint Injections?
In clinical trials, sacroiliac joint injections provided substantial chronic pain relief for up to nine months. Sacroiliac joint injections are not intended to cure the underlying condition that causes your pain. Rather, the treatment provides pain relief to help you follow your primary course of treatment. Should your chronic pain return, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to administer additional injections.
