Re: SI Joint injection worked for low back pain in SI area

I don't know for sure about the inarticular and articular. But I had 2 Epidural Steroid Injuections and Flourscopy has to do with Xrays and them being able to see where they are injecting the cortizone. They want to make sure they're putting in the right spot. I unfortunately was not able to benefit from the ESI's because my L5 S1 is gone except for a small portion. I am having fusion. But you will hurt some for the first few days after the shots and that's normal because it puts pressure in the disc that is injured and until the disc soaks up the cortizone it will be sore.

Good Luck and keep us posted.
