Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain is an important cause of lower back problems. Multiple SIJ injection techniques have been proposed over the years to help in the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. However, the SIJ innervation is complex and variable, and truly intra-articular injections are sometimes difficult to obtain. Different sacroiliac joint injections have shown to provide pain relief in patients suffering this ailment. Various techniques for intraarticular injections, sacral branch blocks and radiofrequency ablation, both fluoroscopy guided and ultrasound guided are discussed in this paper. Less common technique...

Facet or zygapophysial joint pain is commonly seen in the aging population. Interventional procedures, such as facet joint nerve blocks, facet intraarticular injections, and radiofrequency denervation, are used for the diagnosis and treatment of axial spinal chronic neck and low back pain. The focus of this article is to understand how radiofrequency denervation works in the cervical and lumbar spine and to be able to properly select appropriate patients who might benefit from this safe and effective procedure.

This article integrates ultrasonographic diagnosis of fascial injury with examination findings taught in traditional prolotherapy technique. Thoracolumbar fascial anatomy and biotensegrity theory are used to explain patient presentation and response to treatment at these pathologic findings. Detailed case reports provide proof of concept for the 60-year history of prolotherapy in the treatment of chronic low back pain.

Ultrasonography has become an increasingly valuable and promising tool for performing image-guided spine interventions. The increase in the use of ultrasound utilization has led to more studies evaluating ultrasound-guided interventional spine procedures in comparison to fluoroscopy and computed tomography. Several studies have investigated the use of ultrasound for lumbosacral pain management procedures with favorable outcomes.
