In order to correctly diagnose you, your doctor will need to administer a diagnostic test called a sacroiliac joint block. Medication is injected into the joint, which temporarily relieves pain. If your pain is relieved, the diagnosis for sacroiliitis is typically certain.
With a diagnosis, Alexander Bone and Spine Institute first recommends a more conservative approach to treatment, such as cortisone injections or physical therapy.
If conservative methods fail to relieve your pain, you can consult with a specialist about the right kind of treatment for your condition.
