All hip pain sufferers know just how challenging life can be when every step is met with debilitating pain. Not only is it virtually impossible to play sports or exercise intensely, but even everyday activities like going for walks or playing with kids and grandkids become a challenge.
You may have sore hips due to an injury that didn’t heal well or a degenerative condition that’s been building for years.
Some of the most common hip pain causes we successfully treat include:
- Joint degeneration
- Torn ligaments
- Cartilage damage
- And more
If this sounds like you, and you want a solution that doesn’t include drugs or hip replacement surgery, we have regenerative medicine treatments that may be able to help.
Alternatives to Hip Replacement Surgery
If you are considering hip replacement surgery, it’s a good idea to explore your options first. Hip replacement is a highly invasive procedure, and once it’s been done, it can’t be undone. Typically, it requires a long recovery with painful physical therapy, and many people still have issues once the recovery process is complete. Sometimes, follow-up surgeries are required to repair issues or as a second replacement.
The key to lasting hip pain relief is treating the pain at the source and resolving the underlying cause of the pain and discomfort. Once you address the cause, there is no longer a reason for the pain to exist.
If you consistently mask the pain with medication, not only do you risk causing further damage, but you may also become dependent on the medication.
Regenerative Medicine for Severe, Chronic Hip Pain
Our regenerative treatments are minimally invasive and help your body resolve the cause of your painful hips. There is little to no downtime associated with cell therapy and PRP therapy, so you can usually get on with your day once the treatment is complete.
Cell therapy consists of injections that contain a host of powerful healing compounds, including growth factors, proteins, cytokines, lipids and more.
The tissue we use for these injections is derived from donated umbilical cords in a substance called Wharton’s Jelly. The mothers donate the cords willingly, and both the baby and mother are unharmed during the process. The fact that this regenerative tissue is still so young is what makes it potent, working with your body’s own healing process to get results.
PRP therapy is another non-surgical treatment for hip pain that can help you experience long-lasting relief. It starts when we draw a small sample of your blood and place it in a centrifuge to spin. This separates the platelets and the red blood cells, which leaves highly concentrated PRP that’s rich in healing properties and is injected into your damaged hip tissue to help the healing process.
