I have been diagnosed with labral tear of right hip. Going for first injection soon. Do patients do well from these?

In brief: Varies

The injection will only treat the symptoms of the year and not the tear itself.
So the response may be temporary. You may need to consider surgery if symptoms persist.

In brief: Yes

But they don't last long, so the injection is mostly for diagnostic (and not therapeutic purposes).
