When arthritis creates pain in the sacroiliac joint, a steroid injection is administered to relieve pain and reduce inflammation at the point of the spine and hipbone. The patient will lay face forward with a cushion under the stomach to arch the back while the physician locates the sacroiliac joint using a fluoroscope x-ray. After numbing the local skin and tissue with an anesthetic, the physician will then insert a needle into the sacroiliac joint, injecting a mixture of steroids and anesthetics to the area of pain.
