Description

This review describes our institution's standardized technique as well as potential pitfalls for therapeutic steroid injections in children with symptomatic neuromuscular hip dysplasia. Symptomatic, painful neuromuscular hip dysplasia can dramatically affect quality of life. Steroid injections are used to identify the source of perceived pain, temporarily treat pain while awaiting surgical intervention, or for therapeutic management for nonoperative hip joints.
