Sacroiliac Injections

doctor with syringe preparing injectionOrtho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to offer sacroiliac injections as well as a full range of interventional treatments for lower back and neck pain. Sacroiliac injections are an advanced interventional treatment that can be used to diagnose and treat dysfunction of the sacroiliac joints, the joints that lie next to the spine, and connect the sacrum with the hip on both sides. When there is joint dysfunction in the sacroiliac joint or the joint becomes inflamed, it can cause lower back pain and sciatica.

Our orthopedic and spine practice features a team of double board-certified interventional spine physicians and orthopedic specialists who specialize in finding minimally invasive solutions to chronic back and neck pain. Using the most advanced treatment techniques available, we help patients with chronic neck and back pain find long-term relief from their symptoms so they can return to an active and healthy lifestyle.

Symptoms of Sacroiliac Pain

The most common symptoms of sacroiliac pain are low back pain and buttocks pain. The pain may affect the sacroiliac joint on one side or both sides of the body. In some cases, the pain can radiate down the leg, all the way to the foot. Symptoms will vary from patient to patient and can range from mild to debilitating.

When more conservative treatments have failed to provide relief, sacroiliac injections may be used to first diagnose and then treat the source of the pain. This process involves first injecting the sacroiliac joint with an anesthetic, under the guidance of fluoroscopy. If this provides immediate pain relief, a steroid injection may be used to reduce the inflammation thereby producing more long-term pain relief. A sacroiliac injection is an outpatient procedure that takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Some patients will get pain relief from one injection, while others will require multiple injections to get the maximum benefit.

Our interventional spine physicians are highly experienced in administering sacroiliac injections. Using this advanced interventional treatment, we are able to help patients with sacroiliac pain or joint dysfunction get relief from their symptoms and achieve improved function and a greater quality of life.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
