< OA Hip
Hip Injection – Fluroscopic Guided

The hip is one of the largest joints in the body, joining the leg to the pelvis.

When osteoarthritis or injury to the hip joint causes pain in the lower back, buttock or leg, a hip joint injection may help relieve the pain, while also serving as a diagnostic tool. Using fluoroscopic imaging to guide the needle placement, a pain management specialist injects numbing medication into the joint, along with a time-release steroid for long-lasting pain relief. If the numbing agent provides immediate relief, it confirms that pain is originating in the joint, enabling your physician to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
