Treatment OptionsSI joint pain can be difficult to live with. It can make ordinary tasks difficult and can even lead to depression and mood swings. It can be especially difficult to justify back pain when it results from doing your normal job duties and obligations. For those covered by workers’ comp, though, there is hope for treatment and relief.

 Treatment Options for SI Joint Pain

There are four main treatment options for SI joint dysfunction:

  • Exercise. A physical therapist can help you develop a structured exercise regimen to manage pain and avoid the need for invasive medical treatment.
  • Medication. Over-the-counter or prescription medication can be used to provide temporary relief from back pain.
  • Injections. An increasingly popular choice among treatment options is injections, which can provide fast, sometimes long-lasting relief.
  • Surgery. While much more invasive than the other three treatment options, surgery can be an effective, long-term solution to SI joint dysfunction and other back pain.
