Hip Injection

Hip injection is one method of treating hip pain in the joint where your leg joins to your pelvis. If you experience arthritis in this joint, or if your hip joint is injured, you may experience pain that radiates through your hip, buttock, leg, or lower back.

Injection of a corticosteroid along with a local anesthetic may be helpful in relieving symptoms of hip bursitis, which is inflammation of the bursa – a small, jelly-like sac located around the hip; there are two bursae in the vicinity of the hip (and in other areas of the body as well).

Hip injection is a simple and effective treatment that may be done in your specialist’s office. It involves a single injection into the bursa. The injection may provide temporary or permanent relief. If pain and inflammation return, you may require an additional injection, administered a few months later. It is important to limit the number of injections, as prolonged corticosteroid injections may damage the surrounding tissues.

Although hip bursitis cannot always be prevented, there are things you can do to prevent the inflammation from getting worse. Avoid repetitive activities that put stress on your hips. If you are overweight and the extra weight is stressing your joints, weight loss could help. Obtain a properly fitting shoe insert for leg-length differences. Be sure to maintain strength and flexibility of your hip muscles.
