Sacroiliac joint injection

The sacroiliac joint is in the pelvis, where the hip bone and spine meet. If the joint is painful, steroid injections may reduce the pain and allow easier movement.

If the sacroiliac joint is irritated, you may have pain between your low back and upper thigh. A steroid injection can be given to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. A fluoroscope, or special x-ray, is used to make sure the needle goes into the correct position.
