Abstract

Injections at the hip region are relatively common in musculoskeletal practice, due to the relatively high incidence of tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis in this area. Injections in this region can be either diagnostic (e.g., local anesthetic blocks to more definitively determine a specific source of the patient’s pain) or therapeutic (e.g., local corticosteroid injections). Probably the most common injections performed at the hip region are corticosteroid injections at the proximal lateral thigh for trochanteric bursitis +/- iliotibial band (ITB) tendonitis. Other injections in the hip region include intra-articular hip joint injections, iliopsoas bursa (psoas bursa) injections, ischial bursa injections, hamstring tendon origin site injections, and nerve blocks/injections for lateral femoral cutaneous entrapment (meralgia paresthetica).
