Hip pain is a common presentation in medical practice, and causes include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, congenital hip abnormalities, and trauma. Chronic hip pain significantly alters the patient’s quality of life and commonly leads to disability due to damage of structural elements of the hip joint. Ultrasound-guided hip injections are a viable alternative to fluoroscopically guided hip injections. Ultrasound imaging of the hip is a highly sensitive method for detecting joint pathology and periarticular pathology as well. This method is fast, safe, can be used in an ambulatory setting, and allows precise deposition of injectate into the hip joint.
