Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

The sacroiliac joints are the joints that connect your lower spine and pelvis. When the sacroiliac joints have abnormal motion or develop inflammation, pain can occur. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be difficult to diagnose, and it may be mistaken for other causes of low back pain such as: myofascial pain syndrome, lumbar spondylosis, herniated disc with radiculopathy, and/or degenerative disc disease.

Treatment options include medications, physical therapy and injections. The injection that is used to help this condition is a sacroiliac joint injection. A sacroiliac joint injection is an injection where a needle is placed in the sacroiliac joint and cortisone (steroid) is injected. Usually this injection is both diagnostic and therapeutic.
