Our doctors of The Center for Interventional Pain Medicine at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, offer sacroiliac injections for pain related to osteoarthritis.
Sacroiliac joint (SIJ), knee and hip injections are a treatment option available to patients with pain related to osteoarthritis.
The sacroiliac joint is a large joint in the region of the low back and buttocks where the pelvis and spine connect. Abnormal motion or arthritis can cause pain in its immediate region or even in the groin or legs.
A SIJ injection involves placing numbing medicine and steroid into the joint using fluoroscopic guidance. The pain relief assists patients in improved participation in physical therapy and an exercise program. The medication will also serve to reduce presumed inflammation within the joint to help obtain sustained relief in the joint, groin and legs.
Osteoarthritis pain in the back, lower back, buttocks and legs may be relieved with sacroiliac joint, knee and hip injections. When you need an expert pain management specialist, the doctors at The Center for Interventional Pain Medicine are available to provide customized treatment options.
