Hip pain is caused by a number of different reasons. Any damage done to the muscle, tendon, ligament and soft tissue can cause hip pain and discomfort. The reason damage to these parts of the body result in hip pain is because your hips carry the weight of your body.
Hips can endure a lot of wear and tear, but as you age, the cartilage surrounding the hip bone becomes worn. Hip pain is also caused by the overuse of your muscles and tendons.
Common hip problems include:
- Osteoarthritis of the hips
- Labral / labrum tear
- Hip sprains, dislocations, and fractures
If you are suffering from hip pain, you may be searching for a treatment to relieve your pain and suffering without having to resort to hip replacement surgery or potentially addictive painkillers.
Thankfully, there are now cutting-edge treatments that can help relieve your hip pain at the source of the damage. We now offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections as an alternative to undergoing hip replacement surgery.
PRP comes from your own blood and contains healing growth components that promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself. The PRP injection is made in our office from a sample of your blood by using a centrifuge to separate the healing platelets from the other components in order to provide a rich, golden PRP solution that is used for the injection. When injected into a specific area, the PRP stimulates the healing properties present within the body, promoting more effective healing of the injured area. Platelet-rich plasma is an effective treatment for hip injuries.
If you are searching for an alternative to invasive hip replacement surgery and addictive pain medications, our non-invasive, non-surgical treatments can help. Our treatments remove the risks and complications associated with hip replacement surgery, and treat the damage in your hip at the source.
