Our Areas of Focus
What is Hip Pain?
Your hips play an important role in stabilizing the upper and lower halves of your body – and helping them move as they need to. Your hips are made up of a complex network of joints, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles, meaning there are many different conditions that can affect them. When your hips experience dysfunction, it can cause immobilizing pain that can make it difficult to complete even your most basic tasks. Stem cell therapy is a great option to help regenerate damaged tissue in the hips and help patients to begin moving again, pain-free.
What Causes Hip Pain?
Hip pain can be caused by musculoskeletal injuries and conditions like osteoarthritis, labral tears, and bursitis. Since your hips play such an important role in your mobility, it’s easy for them to experience overuse if you’re especially active. For older patients, hip pain can also be caused by arthritis, autoimmune conditions, falls, breakages, or immobility. In any case, hip pain can radiate from areas like the inside or outside of the hip joint, the groin, the buttocks, or the thighs. It can cause you to limp or even worsen with walking or moving around. Whatever your symptoms, our expert team can develop customized therapy using our best regenerative medicine options.
How Can Stem Cells Help Hip Pain?
Stem cell therapy begins working by helping to reduce inflammation that can contribute to chronic hip pain. The main goal after this phase is to actually repair damaged or deteriorating tissues like cartilage, ligaments, or bone by regenerating the specific tissue cell type that is injured. Stem cells can also prevent and help to treat conditions like Avascular necrosis, which is a condition leading to loss of blood flow to the head of the femur and eventually death of the bone. If these conditions are not treated they will continue to progressively get worse. Stem cell therapy is a great non-invasive option to begin repairing and reversing damage in these joints that typically otherwise result in a recommendation for invasive hip surgery.
Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain
Stem cell therapy for hip pain includes injections into the hip joint and pelvic region to regenerate cartilage and damaged tissues, decrease inflammation, and shorten healing times. Stem cells can be collected from your own tissue or provided by a screened donor source. Because of this, stem cells come with very little to no risk of adverse reactions. We can perform stem cell therapy right in our office and you can return home afterward. During your consultation with our stem cell experts in Kirkland, WA, and St. Petersburg, FL, you can learn more about how stem cells can help you break free of chronic hip pain.
