Make Life a Little More ‘Hip’!

Make Life a Little More ‘Hip’!Do you suffer from chronic hip pain with no relief from treatments you have tried? Has your doctor told you that you need a hip replacement? Are you hesitant to take that next step into surgery? Hip replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a hip joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts. While this surgery can relieve pain, the ultimate goal of replacement is to improve joint function and movement. Hip replacement is recommended for a wide variety of reasons; including rheumatoid arthritis-a chronic inflammatory disease that causes joint pain, stiffness and swelling- osteoarthritis, injuries, compressed nerves, and other problems.

Surgery is a big step and many people put it off until they can’t live with the pain any more. With any surgical procedure there are risks involved, and with replacement there is added risk of implant failure, which results in additional surgeries. The most common possibility with replacements is a loosening of the components that have been implanted, which can occur with a fall or other injury to the area or it can occur over time. Another possibility, because a new component is being put into the body that is not designed specifically for each person, is friction from normal wear and activity can produce debris that can cause inflammation in the tissues around the joint, which results in pain in the area.

Maybe it’s time for an alternative to surgery. The doctors and staff at Advanced Orthopedic Solutions offer a non-surgical, safe alternative to surgery that utilizes platelets from your own blood to rebuild the damaged tissues that are causing your pain. This treatment successfully stimulates the healing response to repair the damage, which relieves painful symptoms from the hip and other joints such as the knee and shoulder.

Stem Cell Therapy is a new way to help the body heal itself, using the same process your body uses to heal a cut on your arm. These treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive and do not require the use of drugs. In many cases, they may eliminate the need for surgery all together.

Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) uses the platelets from your own blood to help promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Because joints do not have an active blood supply the healing factors in the blood cannot naturally get to damaged tissues to repair them after injury. Using PRP gives the natural healing factors the opportunity to access the damage and repair it.
