A sacroiliac joint injection is an injection in the joint attaching the lower portion of the spine (sacrum) to the pelvis (iliac bone).
It is a large, but narrow joint that can become irritated and inflamed for many reasons.
There are several possible complications; however, the risk is extremely rare. These include, but not limited to:
You may find that your child's pain gets worse initially. Your child's physician may order a small amount of pain medication for the first 2 days until the injected medication begins to work. This occurs because placing a needle into an irritated muscle causes more irritation. Your child's pain should begin to decrease approximately 2 days after the injection. Approximately 3 days after the injection, an advanced practice registered nurse will call to see how your child is doing. You can call us for any questions or concerns at 1-513-636-7768.
Your child should not participate in any running, jumping or contact sports until advised by his/her doctor.
