Regenerative Medicine and Your Hip Pain

Mar 20, 2019

Are you someone who has chronic hip pain and thinking surgery is the only option? Have you tried just about everything and nothing seems to avail? Regenerative may be the trick! This cutting edge treatment plan will amplify your body’s capability to heal in a natural way.

How Regenerative Medicine Works

Tissue can be regenerated by using growth factors and stem cells which can be found in your own body in the form of platelet rich plasma or bone marrow. The Platelet blood is processed to concentrate platelets.

As the other components of the blood is filtered, the rich plasma is saved. This blood contains just the right ingredients for a natural and safe healing. The bone marrow also contains these growth factors which promotes healing as well.

How Does This Help?

Well, the hipbone is a ball and socket which contains cartilage which allows for the bones the smoothly glide over one another with every movement. When the hip begins to hurt, that is a telltale sign that cartilage has been worn down, leaving the bones to rub against one another causing friction resulting in your pain. There is also soft tissue found around the joint such as ligaments, tendons and bursae.

To aid in healing the pain, fluoroscopy- guided injections of PRP and BMC are inserted into the hip over a period of time, studies have shown function to the hip improving which would mean that cartilage has been restored as well as reversing the damage to the soft tissue.
