Diagnostic Cortisone Injections

Hip Guide

Ultrasound Guided Injections

Dr. Domb and his team are highly trained in ultrasound-guided injections. These procedures are performed in the office at the time of your visit. The ultrasound machine assists Dr. Domb and his Physician Assistants to safely place injectable medications into or around the joint. Hip injection options include:

Diagnostic injections Comprised of local anesthetic, designed to confirm or deny the intra-articular cause of your hip pain. The injection may take up to 30 minutes to work. It is considered a diagnostic procedure, not a form of treatment.

Cortisone A combination of steroid medication and local anesthetic to provide pain relief and decrease inflammation caused by an inflammatory process, muscle sprain or strain, intra-articular injury or arthritis. A patient can have a cortisone injection every 3-4 months to treat:

  • Intra-articular injury
  • Trochanteric bursitis
  • Iliopsoas tendinosis
  • Piriformis tendinosis
