Why do I have pain in my hip?
Pain in the hip is something many people experience at one point or another in their life. Bending, walking, standing, jumping, running, and many of the movements we make every day put stress on our hips. Because the hip bears the weight of the upper body, it can often incur wear and tear that causes the cartilage to break down, resulting in inflammation, and in some cases, osteoarthritis.
How much do hip injections cost?
The cost of hip injections may differ from person to person, depending on your particular insurance plan. However, typically a hip injection costs around $627. We want you to get the care you need so please ask us about how we may be able to help with low-interest financing options.

What can I expect after my hip injection?
Your hip injection should only take a few minutes and will begin to kick in about 15 – 20 minutes after your injection. You may begin to notice pain returning in the following 4 – 6 hours; however, the steroid medicine should start to take effect within the next week. Depending on your particular issues, we will schedule follow-up visits as necessary to keep you comfortable.
How often can I get hip injections?
Typically, it’s suggested to have no more than 3 – 4 injections in the same area of the body each year. After your initial injection, we will take a look at how well the injection works and create a treatment plan from there. Our goal is to reduce your pain in the safest way possible!
