Re: Sacroliac Joint dysfuction.... is there any relief??

tooyong, Have you every tried Prolotherapy? It's basically an injection of sugar water. I have SI joint issues too, along with a very complicated list of back problems. But the first time I had a Prolotherapy injection into my SI joint by my PM doc, it relieved the pain for a good three months. The second time I had this done, it didn't help at all. But looking back, I suspect the second time around the pain may not have been coming from my SI joint that time. Like I said earlier, my back problems are very complicated. Anyways, you might want to ask your doc about it, or even just research it first on the internet. Also, you might want to pose your question on the Back Board;there are a few people there that know about the SI joints and have even had surgery's on them. Good Luck, and Take Care!!...janiee
