With the world of medical technologies constantly updating to provide the safest and most effective treatments for patients, regenerative therapies for hip pain consistently stand head and shoulders above other methods. Gone are the days when chronic suffering indicated a need for replacement or other such invasive procedures. Eterna MD is proud to offer platelet rich plasma, or PRP, therapy for patients who suffer from hip arthritis.
Hip pain can be secondary to multiple problems, the most common of which is hip osteoarthritis or degenerative disease of the hip. When your physician evaluates your case to determine the best solution for your hip pain, a thorough history and a complete physical exam should be performed along with imaging studies to specifically diagnose the origin of hip pain. As outdated treatments begin to fade and give way to new options, one of the newest therapies to surface is that of PRP injection, an effective, low risk ambulatory therapy with an excellent rate of success.
PRP is collected from your own blood and extracted in a lab setting; the platelets of the blood are responsible for the regeneration of skin and the quick and complete healing of the skin and other body tissues. PRP has the potential to help hip pain in a number of ways. Within the joint, arthritis and ligament tears can benefit from PRP’s rejuvenating properties. For mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the hip, PRP can help reduce pain and possibly prevent the progression of the arthritis.
PRP is a breakthrough in the field of Regenerative Medicine, and a great alternative to surgery for many patients. It has enabled physicians to make a big jump in the treatment of various conditions, including arthritis, tendonitis, ligament injuries, and ligament tears. Best of all, it is available to you right here at home at Eterna MD’s Center for Regenerative Medicine.
