    Hip Joint Injections

    This joint is largely affected in arthritis and requires early intervention to stop the pain from worsening. The injection includes numbing medicine that is placed into the joint, and the amount of pain relief experienced helps confirm or rule out the joint as a source of pain. If no pain is experienced while the joint is numb, then the joint is likely to be the primary source of pain.The area around the injection site is cleaned and our physicians will use live X-ray (fluoroscopy) to make sure the injection is going directly to the origin of your pain. The medication is then released into the injection site. Typically, cortisone shots include a corticosteroid medication to relieve pain and inflammation over time and a local anesthetic.
