Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion
Are you experiencing chronic pain and limited mobility in your lower back, hips, or buttocks? At SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine, we offer specialized Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion procedures to effectively alleviate discomfort and enhance your overall well-being.
What is a Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion?
A Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion is a minimally invasive procedure that targets the sacroiliac joint, located at the junction between the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) and the ilium (the large pelvic bone). This procedure involves injecting medication directly into the sacroiliac joint or performing a fusion to stabilize the joint and alleviate pain caused by inflammation, injury, or dysfunction.
Conditions Treated by Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion
Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion can provide relief for various conditions, including:
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction: Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint can result from conditions such as arthritis, sacroiliitis, or pregnancy-related changes. It often causes pain, inflammation, and limited range of motion.
Sacroiliac joint arthritis: Arthritis affecting the sacroiliac joint can lead to chronic pain, stiffness, and difficulty performing daily activities.
Sacroiliac joint injury: Trauma or repetitive stress can cause injury or instability in the sacroiliac joint, resulting in persistent pain and reduced functionality.
The Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion Process at SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine
Our dedicated medical team at SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine will guide you through a comprehensive and personalized treatment journey:
Initial evaluation: We will conduct a thorough assessment, including a review of your medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic imaging, to determine if Sacroiliac Joint Injection/Fusion is the appropriate treatment option for you.
Pre-procedure consultation: We will discuss the procedure in detail, address any concerns or questions you may have, and provide you with instructions to prepare for the day of the procedure.
Injection or fusion procedure: You will be positioned comfortably, and the area will be numbed using a local anesthetic. The injection procedure involves precisely delivering medication into the sacroiliac joint, while fusion involves stabilizing the joint with implants or bone grafts. Our experienced specialists utilize advanced techniques and imaging guidance for accurate and effective treatment.
Recovery and follow-up: After the procedure, you will be monitored for a brief period before being discharged. We will provide you with post-procedure instructions and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
