Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain

If you’ve ever suffered from Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain, there’s no mistaking the sharp, stabbing pains that can shoot through your body. The pain usually starts in your lower back, buttocks, leg or thigh. It’s a sudden, debilitating pain that can prevent you from being active. Temporary pain relief is usually no match and only provides short-term relief, so it may be time to consider a non-surgical and longer lasting option that provides total pain relief: a SI joint injection. At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa we offer SI joint injections as a pain management solution to help you regain your life and mobility again – pain-free.

Regenerative Therapy: Stem cells have the ability to develop and self-renew (make copies of themselves) into many different types of cells, such as skin cells, brain cells, lung cells and more. Stem cells are a key component of regenerative medicine. We offer the following cellular therapies:

  • Amniotic Tissue:  This is donated tissue from cesarian section from women volunteers. The amniotic side of the placenta (baby side) is taken and flash frozen. There is no chorion(mom’s side) of the placenta in this product so no chance of antibodies. In the past 50-100 years there has been no incidences of any adverse reactions to treatment with amniotic tissue. This tissue is flown in overnight, and when ready, thawed and injected into the affected area to help with advanced healing and repair.
  • Bone Marrow Aspirate:  We harvest blood and tissue from the bone marrow at the iliac crest. This bone marrow has growth factors, healing properties and concentrated pluripotent cells (stem-like cells) which further contribute to the regenerative process achieved with PRP. This is an outpatient procedure that is done usually with light sedation, although not always necessary. The bone marrow can be reinjected into joints, discs and epidural space.

Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency nerve ablation is a procedure that can provide lasting pain back pain relief caused by degenerative disc disease.  An electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
 Therapy: using a patient’s own blood, we take platelets, concentrate, condense and then process them, using growth factors from inside the platelets, which we then re-inject into the patient’s damaged tissue to stimulate tissue healing.

How Does a SI Joint Injection Work?

The sacroiliac (SI) joint injection – also called a sacroiliac joint block – is a non-surgical option that relieves chronic pain from the sacroiliac joint. It contains a corticosteroid medication, which relieves pain and inflammation, and provides pain relief over an extended period of time. The quick procedure takes less than one hour, and you’ll feel pain relief in 2 to 4 days, which should last for several months.

 

Effective Relief from These Symptoms:

A SI Joint Injection provides extended pain relief, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Lower back – usually only on one side (or leg pain) that is sharp or stabbing
  • Discomfort when bending or standing after sitting for long periods
  • Thigh and/or buttock pain that possibly radiates down the sciatic nerve
  • Radiating numbness or a tingling sensation from the lower spine to the back of the leg
  • Pain may improve when lying down
