If the SI injection doesn't work, does it mean that the IT isn't the problem

If I had a SI joint injection and it didn't reduce my pain, does it mean the problem isn't my SI joints?

Not necessarily. The shots don't always work if the nerve has been compressed a long time, the joint is down to bone on bone or the SI pain is a referred pain from your lumbar area.
Are you seeing a good fellowship trained Ortho or Neuro?

Blessings,
Michelle
