Hip injuries can be devastating. Some people almost never recover from such an injury and are forced to endure years of pain and limited mobility. Hip arthritis is a medical condition that can be the most detrimental to a person’s health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 512,000 people received total hip replacements in 2011 and osteoarthritis accounted for 80 percent. The CDC also projected that “by 2040, an estimated 78 million Americans ages 18 years or older are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis” in some part of their body, including the hips (cdc.org, 2016). However, the pain from your hip condition does not have to last forever with Regenerative Medicine or Platelet-Rich Plasma injections.
Dealing with hip pain does not have to become part of your life, and you do not have to “deal with it” as you age. A non-surgical solution is available for those not interested in going under the knife. Regenerative Medicine Therapy offers patients the opportunity to improve conditions such as arthritis, avascular necrosis, osteonecrosis, bursitis, and other degenerative hip joint problems. At Regenerative Medicine Of Palo Alto in Palo Alto, we provide our patients with a natural, non-surgical solution of Regenerative Medicine Therapy that may alleviate hip problems by reintroducing Regenerative Medicine into the problem area to promote the body’s capability to naturally heal itself.
Where PRP is produced through a patient’s own blood, stem cells are obtained through fat tissue, bone marrow, or amniotic tissue. By reintroducing regenerative medicine into the affected area, doctors are forcing the body to begin the natural healing process. Both PRP and stem cells can be injected directly into the damaged ligaments, cartilage, and tendons that help the hip function.
At Regenerative Medicine Of Palo Alto in Palo Alto, our doctors understand the importance of a fast recovery, and this non-surgical procedure can improve symptoms, relieve pain, and help functionality return.
