The doctor uses a specialized type of X-ray, known as a fluoroscope, to project an image of the inside of your hip onto a screen. This allows them to see where to place the needle. You lie on an exam table in a position that lets your doctor access your hip joint. The doctor cleans the skin and applies a local anesthetic to numb the area.
They guide the needle into your hip joint while watching on the screen. They then inject a dye to make it easier to see where to inject the steroids. After injecting the medication, you stay in place for 10 minutes. You'll then move your hip to let the doctor know if you still feel pain. You will likely experience some soreness at first as the numbing agent wears off. Once the steroids take effect, you'll notice the pain wears off. This can take two to seven days, according to the U.
National Library of Medicine. How long a steroid lasts varies from person to person. You can expect it to provide relief for weeks or months. Hip pain and inflammation are the general symptoms doctors treat with steroid injections.
There are several conditions that can cause hip pain. These include:. They can also be part of treatment for other conditions, including:. Potential side effects of cortisone shots increase with larger doses and repeated use. Side effects can include:. There's concern that repeated cortisone shots might damage the cartilage within a joint. So doctors typically limit the number of cortisone shots into a joint. In general, you shouldn't get cortisone injections more often than every six weeks and usually not more than three or four times a year.
If you take blood thinners, you might need to stop taking them for several days before your cortisone shot to reduce bleeding or bruising risk. Some dietary supplements also have a blood-thinning effect. Ask your doctor what medications and supplements you should avoid before your cortisone shot.
Tell your doctor if you've had a temperature of Your doctor might ask you to change into a gown. You'll then be positioned so that your doctor can easily insert the needle. The area around the injection site is cleaned. Your doctor might also apply an anesthetic spray to numb the area where the needle will be inserted. In some cases, your doctor might use ultrasound or a type of X-ray called fluoroscopy to watch the needle's progress inside your body — so as to place it in the right spot.
You'll likely feel some pressure when the needle is inserted. Let your doctor know if you have a lot of discomfort. The medication is then released into the injection site. Typically, cortisone shots include a corticosteroid medication to relieve pain and inflammation over time and an anesthetic to provide immediate pain relief.
Some people have redness and a feeling of warmth of the chest and face after a cortisone shot. If you have diabetes, a cortisone shot might temporarily increase your blood sugar levels. Results of cortisone shots typically depend on the reason for the treatment. Cortisone shots commonly cause a temporary flare in pain and inflammation for up to 48 hours after the injection. After that, your pain and inflammation of the affected joint should decrease, and can last up to several months.
