Sciatica Treatment Using Sacroiliac Joint Injections

Have you developed pains around your lower back area? Maybe around your hips, especially when you sit down? These symptoms can be a serious concern for most, as you may be experiencing symptoms of sciatic pains. Sciatica is a serious condition and requires medical attention if pains around your lower back area or hips persist.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is not a medical diagnosis, it is a description of the underlying cause of a medical condition. Sciatica is pain that affects the sciatic nerve, which extends from your lower back to the back of your legs. Many people suffer from sciatic pains, and there are a few known possible causes for Sciatica. These conditions may cause sciatic pains include:

The symptoms of Sciatica are easy to identify:

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek medical assistance. Fortunately, there is a form of treatment available to ease the symptoms of Sciatica.

What treatment is available?

The most effective and long-term treatment to manage and cope with sciatic pains is the use of sacroiliac joint injections. If you suffer from sciatica, opt for a sacroiliac join injection to aid in recovery or pain prevention, and it is found to be effective, you can receive up to three injections a year.

Other than helping with sciatica pains, a sacroiliac joint injection aids in the treatment of sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction also affects the sciatic nerves, causing pains that are very similar to sciatica.

When the joint injection is complete, and pain relief is successful, you may want to consider engaging in a physical therapy and rehab program to further treat and prevent any future pain caused by sciatica and help you return to your daily routine.

It is time to be treated.
