Re: Intra-articular steroid injection in hip
DH was getting them pretty often in his right hip up until he had it replaced last spring. And he's up to about twice a year on his left hip now.
What they said is true, that it may feel worse or at least stiffer for a few days. It does seem to help him a lot for several good months though.
For what it's worth, I did medical transcription for an orthopedist for about 4 years. He does these all the time, very routine, never any complications that I can recall.
