Do You Have Hip Pain?

There are many causes of hip pain that can be addressed with stem cell and/or platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections including:

  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip Joint
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Early Avascular Necrosis
  • Early Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head
  • Bursitis
  • Tendon Injury
  • Ligament Injury
  • Labral Tear
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
  • Symphysis Pubis Arthritis and Pain

If you have an injury to the hip joint or have chronic hip pain due to osteoarthritis, also known as “degenerative joint disease” or “wear and tear” arthritis of the hip, you may be a candidate for adult stem cell therapy.

Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis can cause pain and limited motion and mobility. Stem cell and platelet rich plasma injections can often significantly alleviate pain and restore much lost mobility.

The hips are ball-and-socket joints and are the largest joints in your body. When they are healthy, it takes great force to injure them; however, our younger patients often do so playing sports, running, or falling resulting in strains, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, fractures and dislocations.

Treating Hip Pain

Current treatment for hip disorders may include rest, anti-inflammatory medicines, physical therapy, lubrication or steroid injections, and ultimately surgery. For many patients these intense orthopedic surgeries may not be an option due to their younger age or failing health, especially considering the fact that we are living longer and have more active lifestyles. Additionally, the condition may be painful but not be serious enough to require immediate surgery thus negatively impacting quality of life. The surgeon often postpones a replacement procedure until the pain is unbearable, because the implant may only last for 10 to 15 years. Stem cell therapy may solve your dilemma.

Stem cell therapy is an outpatient, natural alternative to surgery and is performed in our safe, sterile environment. You may avoid risky orthopedic surgery that also requires a long recovery. Stem cell therapy harnesses your own healing processes and focuses them where they are needed.
