The medical staff at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is headed up by Dr. Joseph Mejia, D.C., our Medical Director and specialist in interventional pain management and musculoskeletal medicine. Sacroiliac Joint Injections—like many of the interventional procedures in our office—are often guided by Fluoroscopic imaging for increased accuracy and effectiveness.
For diagnostic purposes, a local anesthetic may be injected in the suspected Sacroiliac Joint. When or if the anesthetic manages to relieve pain, a more precise diagnosis can be made in order the guide the formation of pain management and rehabilitation strategies.
When used for longer-lasting pain relief, Sacroiliac Joint Injections may involve the use of a corticosteroid. This procedure may provide relief for several months and, in many cases, can help patients to use healthy means of rehabilitation such as physical therapy or chiropractic care.
