Sacroiliac (SI) Injection
A sacroiliac (SI) joint injection is primarily used to treat low back pain and/or sciatica symptoms associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
A SI joint injection starts with numbing the sacroiliac joint with local anesthetic .The injection is x-ray (fluoroscope) guided for accuracy. Once the needle has entered the sacroiliac joint, contrast is injected into the joint to ensure proper needle placement and proper spread of medication. An anti-inflammatory medication is injected to provide pain relief by reducing inflammation within the joint.

- Short Recovery
- High Success Rate

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
