Why Choose Hip Joint Injections
When considering hip joint pain management treatment options many people wonder why injections should be considered. While it is true that this is not necessarily the simplest option, it does come with many benefits that other options can’t offer. If you take heavy doses of oral or IV pain medication, for example, you’ll have to deal with all the side effects such as impaired judgment, potential liver issues, addictiveness and many others.
Hip joint injections in NYC, on the other hand, have very few (if any) negative side effects to worry about. This is because the doctor will be injecting the medication directly to the area where the problem exists. When doing this the medication doesn’t need to spread all through the body. In addition, since it is such a focused treatment option less total medication is needed.
What to Expect
When you come into our offices for hip joint injections in New York it is good to know what to expect. The procedure is minimally invasive and depending on the exact location of the injections, it won’t take very long at all. The length of the appointment will be told to you when you call to set it up. Once you arrive you will sit or lay on a table to give the doctor access to the right area where the injections need to be placed.
The doctor will then carefully place the needle in so that it goes to the exact location that is causing the pain. Once in place, they will inject the medications which are typically a solution of pain medication, anti-inflammatory medication and steroids. Depending on your specific case the doctor may need to make multiple injections on each hip to get the best results. When done you will be able to go home and resume normal activities immediately.
