“So when we do the SI Joint injection, we typically want to start off by getting a true lateral image, which looks like this. This is where the anterior and posterior SI joints are superimposed, okay, which is what we see in this particular picture. Then what I’m going to do is I’m going to rotate it towards me, and what you’re going to notice here is that the SI Joint is going to start to separate. And that’s what we’re seeing right now, to the point that we basically see our posterior joint, which is right here, and our anterior joint, which is right here, separating completely. Okay. And what we think is that the posterior joint, which is the medial one, is located right here: this is our opening. So this is basically where we’re going to want to make our mark, and anesthetize the skin.”
