Hip pain is a common affliction, particularly for older adults, and may be caused by several issues, including bursitis, osteoarthritis, or a previous injury. At Mountain View Pain Center, we offer a wide assortment of care, such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, or massage therapy, to relieve this pain. However, pain relief is a process and if you are not seeing results from more conservative forms of care, a hip injection may help.
Much like other steroid injections, this procedure is performed in an outpatient setting. You are first placed on your side and the injection site is numbed. The performing doctor will guide the needle using x-rays to the correct area and then administer medications, including an anesthetic and a steroid. Once the injection is completed, you will be observed to make sure there are no side effects. You can then go home.
This is considered a low risk procedure. Complications, though rare, include bleeding, infection, and nerve damage. You should consult with your provider if you are on blood thinners, are immunosuppressed, have an active infection, or are pregnant.
Though hip pain is common, that does not mean it is not treatable. At Mountain View Pain Center, we provide multiple avenues of care to fit your needs. Contact one of our offices today if you are ready to make hip pain a thing of your past.
