The hip joint is the largest joint in the body, and it is put under extreme pressure and stress from the upper body. Wear and tear that reduce cartilage in the joint is a common cause of friction and inflammation in the hip. Osteoarthritis and other degenerative diseases cause hip pain and limit mobility. Ospina Medical offers hip injections that can relieve pain at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.
Bending, walking, standing, running and jumping all put stress on the hip joints. The ball and socket joint of the hip carries a heavy load, which can result in the deterioration of the cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bone. Osteoarthritis is common in the hip joint, which can lead to hip stiffness, popping, grinding and pain when bending or moving the legs. There is not a cure for arthritis, but there are options to relieve inflammation and pain, as well as slow deterioration of the joint.
Hip Pain Relief
Hip injections are a non-invasive option to relieve pain from inflammation and arthritis. Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer image-guided hip injections that can deliver anti-inflammatory medication directly to the joint. We use a local anesthetic injection that will numb the area, providing immediate, but temporary, pain relief. Steroid hip injections can relieve inflammation and provide reduced pain and improved mobility, lasting for several weeks or longer in most cases.
