What causes hip pain? Hip pain can be caused by a number of conditions, including arthritis, hip fractures, bursitis, tendinitis, muscle or tendon strain. These conditions can either be caused by natural wear and tear that comes along with aging, or it can be caused by an injury, new or old.
St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury and Rehab offer our patients natural alternatives that can help you avoid invasive surgeries that have lengthy downtimes. Through regenerative medicine and cellular treatments. We offer many options for relieving your hip pain quickly and effectively with long-lasting results.
PRP or (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections are another option. With PRP, your blood is used to heal the injury. This process is done by taking a small blood sample and separating the platelets from the rest of the sample. The platelets are then re-injected into the hip, encouraging your body's natural ability to heal the area. These procedures offer an alternative and highly efficient solution to hip replacement surgery.
Hip Joint Pain Relief
Our hips endure a lot of wear and tear throughout our lifetime due to the fact that they carry the entire weight of our body. As we age, the muscles and tendons get worn down, so do the joints and cartilage. Because our hips are designed to be strong and withstand a great deal of strain, we don’t always realize the effects on the joint by doing everyday activities. The way we stand, walk, and sit has a great impact on the hip joints and can cause aches and pains in the hips. Our doctors will accurately evaluate and assess the root of hip pain and devise a treatment plan specific to your needs. By getting the proper treatment, we can help prevent future pain and injury.
Hip Pain Treatments
Regenerative medicine is a great option for those looking for hip pain relief without the need for invasive surgery or pain masking drugs. With the use of regenerative cells, our bodies have an incredibly unique ability to heal themselves; however, our cells age as we do, making them less effective in aiding in the healing process. By introducing mesenchymal cells, we can greatly improve the rate of recovery because these are younger cells, they can speed up the process of healing tissue, muscle, and cartilage at a faster rate than the aged cells.
Whatever the cause of your hip pain, regenerative therapies offer a natural alternative to hip replacement surgery. Surgeries and medications are accompanied by a variety of risks and possible complications. If this sounds like it may be the right fit for you, give St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury and Rehab a call today and let us get you back to an active lifestyle free of pain.
