Sacroiliac Joint Injections
This injection is similar to facet joint injections. Sacroiliac joints are located between the sacrum and ileum, known as the pelvic bones.
Problems with the sacroiliac joints are known to cause pain in the lower back, buttock, and leg. Generally, one joint is painful and causes pain on one side of the lower body.
A sacroiliac injection is performed under X-ray guidance.
This is a type of spinal injection that is done only for the diagnosis of pain. There is no pain-relieving effect. It is designed to reproduce a person’s pain in order to find the source of longstanding back pain that fails to diminish with comprehensive, conservative treatment.
Discography is performed by stimulating and pressurizing a vertebral disc. This is done by injecting a liquid into the center of more than one disc to distinguish a problem disc from another.
