SI Joint Injections

Hip Joint Injection

This is an injection of medicine that goes into your hip joint. We use it to treat pain and inflammation. We can also use it to find the source of your pain.

To begin, we may give you medicine to help you relax. We numb the skin and tissue of your hip. Now, we carefully guide a needle into your joint. We may use ultrasound to guide the needle. Or, we may use a video x-ray device. If so, we may inject contrast dye through the needle so we can see the joint better.

Shoulder Joint Injection

This is an injection of medicine that goes into your hip joint. We use it to treat pain and inflammation. We can also use it to find the source of your pain.

In preparation for the procedure, the shoulder is cleansed and sanitized. Local anesthetic is administered to numb the tissue at the injection site. The physician may choose from multiple needle approaches, depending on which part of the shoulder requires treatment.
