Before Considering Hip Replacement Surgery, Know All Your Options
In the United States, more than 300,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed each year. This invasive procedure requires a long recovery and rehabilitation process and often includes complications in the future that cause pain and reduced mobility.
If you are considering hip surgery, it’s wise to consider all your non-surgical options first, including chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care helps to relieve pressure on damaged nerves, restore balance, and improve overall joint function. Having a chiropractic adjustment has been shown to decrease inflammation, improve mobility and range of motion, and reduce hip pain for a better quality of life.
For more severe cases, regenerative medicine is another form of non-surgical treatment we offer for painful hips. Our regenerative treatments include cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
For our regenerative cellular therapy treatments, our doctors use Wharton’s jelly-derived regenerative cells collected from donated umbilical cord tissue, as these cells are still young and loaded with potent healing properties.
The problem with using your own cells rather than cells that are young and brand new is that they have aged right along with you and have lost much of their healing abilities.
Utilizing youthful cells collected after a C-section birth ensures quality, potent cells rich in healing abilities. During the collection process, neither the mother nor baby experience any discomfort, and the mother is prescreened beforehand for health and social history.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma injections are created using a sample of your own blood that is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and the concentrated platelets into a rich, golden solution. The solution, loaded with potent healing properties and platelets, is then injected into your hip, where it can begin facilitating healing and encouraging your body’s own natural healing mechanisms.
All of these treatments for hip pain that we offer are non-surgical and address the underlying cause of your sore hips. If you just mask the outward symptoms with medication, then the real cause of the pain will never be resolved and the pain won’t be either. It will just keep coming back every time your medication wears off and you’ll continue to cause more damage to the joint. By targeting the root cause of the pain, you’ll be able to experience long-lasting relief so you can avoid hip replacement surgery.
