Hip injuries can be devastating. In fact, some people almost never recover. Hip arthritis seems to be the most detrimental to people’s health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 512,000 people received total hip replacements in 2011 and osteoarthritis accounted for 80 percent. The CDC also projected that “by 2040, an estimated 78 million Americans ages 18 years or older are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis” (cdc.org, 2016). However, the pain from your hip condition does not have to last forever with Platelet-Rich Plasma injections.
Dealing with hip pain does not have to become part of your life, and you do not have to “deal with it” as you age. A non-surgical solution is available for those not interested in going under the knife. Regenerative Medicine Therapy offers patients the opportunity to improve conditions such as arthritis, avascular necrosis, osteonecrosis, bursitis, and other degenerative hip joint problems. At Bay Area Regenerative Medicine Therapy in San Ramon, we provide our patients with a natural, non-surgical solution of Regenerative Medicine Therapy that may alleviate hip problems by increasing the concentration of a patient’s own Regenerative tissues and reintroducing them into the problem area to promote the body’s capability to naturally heal itself.
By taking a patient’s own blood, concentrating the platelets in the blood, and reintroducing them in to the affected area, doctors are forcing the body to begin the natural healing process. PRP is inserted directly into the damaged ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. At Bay Area Regenerative Medicine Therapy in San Ramon, our doctors understand the importance of a fast recovery, and this non-surgical procedure can improve symptoms, relieve pain, and help functionality return.
