The sacroiliac joint is located between the tailbone (the coccyx) and the pelvic bone, and is a common source of chronic back pain. Sacroiliac joint pain can present as hip, groin, low back or even thigh pain. Under the guidance of X-ray fluoroscopy, a needle is injected at the SI joint to administer a local anesthetic. Both steroids and platelet rich plasma (regenerative medicine) procedures can be done into this area with excellent response.
