Hip pain can be a chronic and painful deterrent to being active in your daily life. It limits your ability to comfortably walk, sit, or perform daily tasks. If hip pain is getting in the way of you living your life, it’s time to get medical advice, and the Stem Cell Center of New Jersey can help. We offer several non-surgical treatment options, such as stem cell therapy to help you regain your mobility and relieve chronic hip pain.
The hip’s ball-and-socket joint is the largest in the body, and is designed to withstand its repeated fluid motion and a fair amount of wear and tear. However, with age and use, the hip’s cartilage can become damaged or worn down, causing hip pain. Most people feel hip pain on the outside of their hip, upper high or outer buttock, and is caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissue surrounding the hip joint. Diseases or other conditions, such as lower back pain could also be causing hip pain.
Hip Pain can be caused by a sudden injury, such as falling, overuse such as running, or by an underlying condition, such as arthritis. Symptoms of hip injuries can include aching pain, stiffness and swelling. Regardless of where your hip pain originated from, don’t let it derail your active lifestyle.
People who have hip pain report feeling stiffness, limping – or not being able to put their full weight on their damaged hip, as well as decreased mobility. The symptoms can vary, depending on the cause; however, some common hip pain symptoms include:
Currently, the most common treatment for hip pain is physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications and opioids, steroid injections, joint lubricant injections, hip resurfacing or in extreme cases hip replacement surgery, which can take weeks of therapy to recover from. However, regenerative medicine is an emerging field, which offers a non-surgical option that uses the patient’s own stem cells or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to restore and begin to rebuild damaged, inflamed tissues.
At Stem Cell Center of New Jersey, we offer regenerative therapies including stem cell, exosomes, and other sources of growth factors to regenerate healthy tissue. Contact us today to schedule a one on one consultation, or to join us at one of our informative lectures to learn more about the potential of stem cell therapy.
