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.
