Intra-articular vs extra-articular SI joint injections

My doctor gave me three joint injections that did not help. I have been looking on the internet and studying about these injections and why mine didn't work. My doctor said because the injections didn't work it must be something else, but my pain is definitely in the Rt. SI Joint area. I had MRI's on my back and it is fine. I fell and injured my rt SI Joint, and based on my studies, injuries like these would most likely not cause damage to the joint itself, but to the ligaments around the joint. So am I wrong to believe that the doctor gave me intra-articular injections when I should have had extra-articular ones instead?
