Hip Pain

Hip joints carry a heavy load each day supporting the bulk of our body weight. The joints in your hips are the largest in the body and assist us as we sit, stand, walk, climb, jump and lift. Although the hip joints are incredibly durable, hip joints are highly vulnerable to injury and overuse. The cartilage that cushions the large bones of your hip joint can break down over time and the tendons attaching the hip joints to surrounding muscles can become worn with overuse. You should seek immediate help for any of the following hip pain symptoms:

Pain in the thigh, hips, groin or buttocks
Grinding or resistance in the hip joint
Difficulty walking or standing for prolonged periods
Weakness in the hips and legs
Worsening pain during activity or rest

Hip pain can be the result of a number of conditions related to the hip joint, tendons and muscles in the area. Hip pain conditions can be the result of misalignment in the spine or issues elsewhere in the body like the lower back or knees. Hip pain can be caused by arthritis, injury, obesity, nerve conditions, overuse, and strenuous activity. Pinpointing the location and characteristics of your pain will help determine the underlying cause of the issue.

Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Hip Pain?

For many people, a malfunctioning hip joint could be the determining factor in the ability to maintain independence. An unhealthy hip joint could rob you of your ability to remain mobile and active so it’s important to address hip pain with effective treatments. Many people manage their hip pain on a daily basis with over the counter pain medications and NSAIDs, but these are temporary fixes to the issue that may begin to lose effectiveness over time. Patients opting for longer relief from hip pain with cortisone shots are exposed to a host of side effects including the weakening of nearby tendons, nerve damage, joint deterioration, and osteoporosis. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy offers the relief you need with none of the concerning side effects of traditional treatment. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that effectively addresses many of the underlying causes of hip pain and helps patients avoid invasive surgery and joint replacement.

Labrum Tear

The labrum is a ring of cartilage that protects the outside rim of the hip joint socket. The labrum holds the thigh bone in place and helps it spin in its socket to facilitate fluid movements like walking and sitting. The labrum absorbs shock and also acts as a seal keeping the femur securely in the hip joint socket while preventing the bones from rubbing together and causing friction. Symptoms of a labrum tear in the hip include:

Clicking or sticking sensation when walking or bending
Stiffness and pain while walking, sitting or squatting
Difficulty walking, standing or sitting for prolonged periods
Pain radiating from the hip and groin

Labrum tears can be the result of trauma, repetitive movements from occupational or physical activity demands and aging. It is common for labrum tears to present with no symptoms at all, but early detection is key to addressing the condition before further damage can occur.

Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Labrum Tear?

Traditional treatment choices available for labrum tears in the hip vary depending on the characteristics of the tear. Pain medications and NSAIDs are used to relieve pain temporarily and mask other symptoms so patients are able to function but because labrum tears are common in older patients there are several concerning side effects to the medication to be aware of. Pain medications both over the counter and prescription as well as NSAIDs can be taxing on other vital organs like the heart, kidney, and liver. Continued use of the medications could cause more damage than good and the temporary effect they have can diminish over time. Arthroscopic surgery is another traditional treatment option that carries serious side effects and risks like, nerve damage and infection. Many patients seek other treatment alternatives specifically to avoid the long painful recovery from surgical options. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy works with your body to boost the natural healing process and direct regenerative power to the labrum tear and surrounding area. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy helps to regulate inflammation caused by the damage while regenerating cartilage, tendon and even bone to restore your health hip joint.

Hip Osteoarthritis / Hip Joint Degeneration

Healthy cartilage is essential to the function of every joint in the body so, a large joint like the hip is highly dependent on cartilage to keep it moving smoothly. Healthy cartilage helps the bones move together with fluidity and absorbs the shock and impact of our movements. Hip osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the hip joint begins to thin and break down. The Hip joint becomes inflamed and the bones in the joint begin to rub together creating painful friction and limited mobility. Symptoms of hip osteoarthritis and hip joint degeneration include:

Difficulty walking, sitting and bending
Dull aches in the hip, thigh, buttocks, and knees
Friction, popping or clicking when walking or sitting

There are two types of osteoarthritis. Primary osteoarthritis is the normal degeneration of the hip joint from aging. Secondary osteoarthritis is caused by trauma and conditions that cause chronic inflammation that attacks the joint. Aging is the most common cause of hip osteoarthritis, but the condition can be encouraged by excess weight, genetics or a sedentary lifestyle.

Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Hip Osteoarthritis?

Many medical professionals treat osteoarthritis and degenerative joint conditions with the intent of managing the pain caused by the condition with no effort to repair or heal the underlying issue with the joint. Pain medications and NSAIDs are popular go-to methods for pain management but can cause serious side effects that threaten the health of other vital organs. For patients looking for more permanent solutions, surgery is usually suggested to repair or replace the hip joint with a prosthetic. Surgery carries its own serious risks like nerve damage and infection and adding a prosthetic could further jeopardize the health of surrounding tendons, muscle and bone and compromise your total body health. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is the only effective treatment option for hip osteoarthritis that carries none of the risks or side-effects of traditional treatment. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option for hip osteoarthritis that helps to regulate inflammatory response while repairing and regenerating protective cartilage. This non-invasive treatment requires no painful recovery and offers long-lasting results where traditional treatments fall short.

Hip Bursitis

A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that helps bones glide together in joints without friction. There are two main bursae in the hip, the trochanteric bursa located on the outer hip and thigh and ischial bursa located in the upper buttock. Hip bursitis occurs when these cushioning sacs that protect the bones in your hip joint become inflamed. The bursae crowd the hip joint interrupting function and causing extreme pain. Symptoms of hip bursitis include:

Tenderness at the site
Dull pain in the hip, thigh or buttocks
Burning sensation
Difficulty walking or sitting for prolonged periods

Hip bursitis is usually the result of chronic inflammation, trauma, strain or overuse. Chances for developing hip bursitis can increase with age and normal degeneration of the hip joint over time. Anyone who performs repetitive motions like walking, standing, lifting or climbing for work or physical exercise can potentially develop the condition. Bursitis is one of the most common causes of hip pain and is commonly confused with arthritis because of similar symptoms. Careful diagnostic testing is essential in determining the proper route of treatment.

Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Hip Bursitis?

Initial treatment for hip bursitis usually comes in the form of pain medication and NSAIDs to manage pain and symptoms. For more severe cases of hip bursitis, the bursa may need to be aspirated by draining excess fluid from the sac with a syringe. This approach relieves pressure but does not prevent hip bursitis from flaring up again. Some severe cases are recommended for surgical aspiration of the bursa or complete removal to correct the condition. These traditional approaches come with a host of threatening side effects that many patients would hope to avoid while searching for effective solutions to their hip bursitis. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option that works to correct the underlying issue of hip bursitis by regulating the body’s inflammation response and return the bursa to its normal state. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy is a safe and effective treatment that carries none of the risks of medication or surgery. Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy focuses on natural healing and pain relief to return the function of your healthy hip joint.
