Is chronic hip pain affecting your mobility and making your life difficult? You might be interested in learning more about an emerging new field of medicine with the potential to correct the underlying conditions causing your sore hips. Our medical center in Worthington, Ohio offers non-surgical regenerative medicine alternatives to address a wide range of painful conditions.
Traditional solutions to long-term chronic hip pain usually involved prescription pain medication. When that doesn’t work, one of three types of surgeries would typically be recommended. Hip replacement surgery, ACL surgery, or hip resurfacing were the only real medical options available to treat the debilitating pain in your hips. Fortunately, modern medicine, more specifically, regenerative medicine, now offers a new option for pain relief that requires no medication or surgery to be effective.
What are stem cells? Stem cell therapy focuses on extracting cells from your body, from the adipose or fat tissue. These stem cells help your body heal and renew itself, by differentiating into ligaments, cartilage, and tendons, helping to relieve many types of chronic pain. In some cases, stem cell therapy may even eliminate the need for surgery.
While stem cell therapy is a game-changer, the treatment does present certain drawbacks. While it is true that stem cells can be extracted from your body and injected directly into your damaged hips, the success of this type of treatment depends on the strength and potency of your cells.
Since your cells age right along with you, the possibility of success with this treatment is dependent on your overall state of health and wellness. Another disadvantage is that harvesting cells from your body can be a painfully invasive procedure that opens you up to risks and further complications.
Within the field of regenerative medicine is a set of procedures, termed as regenerative cell treatments. Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors found in birth tissue also stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal. Concentrated injections of stem cells and growth factors generate tissue that is used to repair damaged or diseased areas, such as hip joints. Bioactive materials contained in these stem cells also attract new stem cells to your injured or damaged hips, helping your body to repair itself quicker to restore loss of function.
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)
Like stem cells, platelets are also one of your body’s natural healers. When you’re injured, platelets migrate to the damaged tissues and release growth factors that stimulate new tissue growth. A member of our competent and trained medical team takes a sample of your blood, extracts growth factor-rich platelets, concentrates them, then injects them into your damaged joints. This concentrated injection of PRP triggers the production of musculoskeletal tissues and blood vessels and helps prevent the degeneration of healthy tissues.
