Beyond thankful for such an amazing Pain institute. From the personal care and interested Dr. Ali takes with all my pain issues. To the friendly and accommodating staff that makes me feel comfortable when arriving and leaving after all my visits. I can honestly recommend treatment here for my family and friends and truly feel that they will receive the same experience I have up to this point.

What is it?
A sacroiliac joint injection serves several purposes. First, by placing numbing medicine into the joint, the amount of immediate pain relief you experience will help confirm or deny the joint as a source of your pain. That is, if you obtain complete relief of your main pain while the joint is numb it means this joint is more likely than not your pain source. Furthermore, time-release cortisone will be injected into the joint to reduce any presumed inflammation, which on many occasions can provide long-term pain relief.
Although there are numerous ways to treat sacroiliac joint dysfunction, sacroiliac joint injections work powerfully to reduce your inflammation and they can provide months of relief.
Conditions it treats?
Pain from sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be felt anywhere in the low back, buttocks, or in the legs. Chronic SI joint pain symptoms can make it difficult to perform common daily tasks, and can affect many aspects of a patient's life. The good news is, Dr. Ali is trained in SI joint pain treatment, from conservative therapies to minimally invasive SI joint fusion surgery.
