What causes hip pain? Hip pain can be caused by several conditions, including arthritis, hip fractures, bursitis, tendinitis, muscle, or tendon strain. These conditions can either be caused by natural wear and tear that comes with aging or can be caused by an injury, new or old.
Suncoast Integrative Healthcare offers our patients natural alternatives that can help avoid invasive surgeries that have lengthy downtimes. 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 since 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.
