Sacroiliac Joint Injection Procedure

Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection Animation:

 

The sacroiliac joint injection procedure is an injection performed to relieve pain from the joint that connects the sacrum and the ileum, which are two large bones in the low back/pelvis area above your hip socket. The sacroiliac joint injection procedure involves numbing medication that is sometimes mixed with steroids and is injected in or around the joint. Although uncommon, risks for the sacroiliac joint injection procedure may include bleeding, infection, nerve damage and allergic reaction to the medication.
