In brief: Regional analgesia
A sacroiliac joint injection is an injection of local anesthetic, typically combined with a glucocorticoid (form of steroid), into the joint to relieve inflammation and pain associated with sacroliitis.
A cervical nerve block is an injection of local anesthetic designed to "block" a cervical nerve for the purpose of pain relief, or pain prevention, as for a surgical procedure on the arm or hand.
