Overview

Sacroiliac Joint Located

The patient lies face down. A cushion is placed under the stomach for comfort and to arch the back. The physician uses touch and a fluoroscope to find the sacroiliac joint.

1. Anesthetic Injected

A local anesthetic numbs the skin and all the tissue down to the surface of the sacroiliac joint.

2. Needle Inserted

The physician advances a needle through the anesthetized track and into the sacroiliac joint.

3. Steroids Injected

A steroid-anesthetics mix is injected into the sacroiliac joint, bathing the painful area in medication.

End of Procedure

The needle is removed, and a small bandage is used to cover the tiny surface wound.
