Hip Joint Pain Relief
Arthritis of the hip is a condition characterized by the wearing down or lack of cartilage around your hip joints. Traditional treatment for degenerative diseases of the hip joint often consists of prescription pain medication or total hip replacement surgery.
Hip pain occurs because of several factors, and depending on the cause, it may present itself as various symptoms, including:
- Joint pain in the hips while walking or running
- Pain in the groin area
- Swelling, warmth, or tenderness of the joint
- Loss of range of motion
- Difficulty sleeping on the side
Causes of hip pain include:
- Hip bursitis
- Muscle strain
- Lower back problems
Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatments for Hip Pain
Practitioners of regenerative medicine see great results in patient outcomes with platelet-rich plasma therapy and injections containing mesenchymal stem cells. These cells help to repair damaged or injured tissue either by differentiating into specialized cells of a tissue system, helping to recruit cells for healing or by creating an environment that stimulates tissue regeneration.
Throughout your body, billions of specialized cells make up soft tissue like muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bone. When tissues are severely injured or degenerated, the severity of the damage often exceeds your body's regenerative capabilities. Injections containing mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors accelerate your body's natural renewal process to combat this deficiency. Stem cells turn into whatever your hip needs—bone, cartilage, ligament, and more—to repair damage and soothe pain.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma enriched with a significantly high concentration of platelets and growth factors that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
Platelets are the blood cells involved with healing and also contain large therapeutic properties essential for cell recruitment and healing. Processed from your blood during a simple procedure conducted at our medical center, PRP injections are being used successfully for soft tissue injuries and arthritis.
Other Natural Solutions for Hip Injuries
Chiropractic treatment is also useful for the treatment of hip pain-related conditions. Chiropractic adjustments for the hip are an effective means of relieving pain without prescription medication or a hip replacement.
MLS laser therapy is also a viable solution for hip pain. This noninvasive treatment option uses light energy to heal the root cause of your pain at the source, reducing swelling, improving the body's system functions, and promoting healing to your painful and damaged hip.
ARP, or Accelerated Recovery Performance, is another non-invasive hip pain relief method that is non-surgical and a non-pharmaceutical. ARP uses Direct Current (DC) to encourage blood flow to areas of injury. This blood flow can help encourage the healing of tissue at a fast rate.
Physical Therapy helps strengthen and rehabilitate areas that have weakened due to injury. Our Physical Therapist will provide you with specialized therapeutic strengthening exercises to help improve mobility and relieve pain.
Acupuncture is another non-pharmaceutical, non-surgical modality used to for hip pain relief. Acupuncture uses thin, thread like needles precisely placed in areas of the body to help encourage blood flow and release any blockages that maybe contributing to tension in the hips.
