We’ve spoken before about facet joint injections, and at Spine and Joint Solutions, we’re dedicated to finding the proper treatment for each patient that we see. A facet joint injection is just one of the spinal treatments that we offer, and it may work for some but not for others, and we never give up on finding effective back pain treatment for our patients in Colorado Springs. One such treatment is a sacroiliac joint injection, which focuses on the joint in the pelvic region.
The sacroiliac joint connects the sacrum to the pelvis, and since the sacrum and pelvis support the weight of the upper body, this joint allow for shifting and flexibility during movement. If the sacroiliac joint becomes inflamed or the connective tissue becomes damaged, a person could experience severe pain and discomfort in their hip and lower back area. With a focused injection performed under ultrasound guidance in our office, you can restore the joint’s functionality and no longer suffer pain. You can opt for conscious sedation during the injection, but please keep in mind that you will be awake and alert during the procedure so that we can communicate with you.
As with any treatment that we provide, we will discuss all of your options with you. A sacroiliac injection might be the perfect treatment for you, but it might need to be paired with another method to provide the most relief for your pain. No matter the circumstances, our goal is to provide our patients with the very best back pain treatment in Colorado Springs.
