SI Joint Injection


Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are dedicated to providing advanced pain management solutions tailored to your unique needs. If you are suffering from lower back pain, hip pain, or leg pain due to Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction, SI Joint Injection may offer the targeted relief you’ve been seeking.

What is SI Joint Injection?

SI Joint Injection, also known as Sacroiliac Joint Injection, is a specialized medical procedure designed to diagnose and treat pain arising from the sacroiliac joint. The SI joint connects the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) to the ilium (the large pelvic bone) and is responsible for transferring weight and forces between the upper body and the legs. Dysfunction of the SI joint can result in persistent pain and discomfort.

  • Effective Pain Relief: SI Joint Injections have a proven track record of providing relief for conditions such as sacroiliac joint dysfunction or inflammation.
