How Does a Hip Injection Work?
A hip injection contains pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory medication. The injection delivers the medication directly to the painful or injured joint for pain relief. Hip injection therapy reduces or eliminates the pain so you can return to an active lifestyle.
Your hip joint connects one major axis to two others, enabling the movement of your body. The joint bears the weight of your body. Inflammation or injury to any part of your hip joint leads to excruciating pain and a limited range of motion, stopping you from fully participating in your favorite activities.
