Sacroiliac Joint Treatments
Treatment Options for Sacroiliac Joint Disorders
Treatments can vary depending on the severity of your symptoms and how much they limit your everyday activities. Below are some of the treatment options you may want to discuss with your doctor, depending on your symptoms.
Nonsurgical Treatment for Sacroiliac Joint Disorders
As a first line of treatment, your doctor may prescribe any one or more of the following:
- Medications like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may help relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
- Physical Therapy can help provide strengthening and pelvic stabilization exercises to reduce the movement in the SI joint.
- SI Belt wraps around the hips to help squeeze the sacroiliac joints together. This supports and stabilizes the pelvis and sacroiliac joints.
- SI Joint Injections can reduce inflammation and relieve the pain.
Surgical Treatment of Sacroiliac Joint Disorders
If symptoms persist due to instability, your physician may recommend stabilizing your joint with sacroiliac joint fusion.
