Non-surgical and Surgical Options SACROILIAC JOINT FUSION

Nonsurgical Treatments

When treating SI joint dysfunction, doctors will often recommend starting with a nonsurgical treatment, such as:

  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic medicine
  • Medications
  • Injections

Surgical treatments

If physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, medications, or injections don’t help, a doctor may recommend that a person consider surgery to stabilise their sacroiliac joint through fusion (joining bones together into one solid structure). SI joint fusion surgery can be minimally invasive, a person should consult their medical team to decide if surgery is a good option to treat sacroiliac joint disease.

The best treatment depends on each unique situation. Discuss treatment options with a doctor.
