Abstract

Intra-articular hip injections are commonly used in the evaluation and treatment of hip disorders. Although these injections are typically performed with fluoroscopic guidance, ultrasound provides a viable alternative for ensuring accurate intra-articular needle placement. This report describes the technique for performing ultrasound-guided intra-articular hip injections in the context of an office-based physiatric practice. Ultrasound offers several advantages over fluoroscopy, including accessibility, compact size, lack of ionizing radiation exposure, and visualization of neurovascular and other soft-tissue structures. With appropriate training and experience, interested physiatrists can consider implementing ultrasound-guided injections into their clinical practices.
