Hip joint pain can be present in the younger years as a result of an injury, but is more common in the later years as a result of osteoarthritis and overuse-related tendonitis. It is typically disabling and requires aggressive treatment.
Dextrose and Biocellular Prolotherapy
Ultrasound guided steroid injections of the hip joint can relieve pain and inflammation of the arthritic joint. Frequently the hip joint is a victim of underlying ligamentous instability. We treat the entire hip ligament, labrum and muscle complex to promote joint stabilization. Treatment of underlying hip joint degeneration and instability frequently helps with buttock, leg, knee, groin and pelvic pain. Unlike a more commonly used target specific approach where just the hip joint is injected, our technique restores stability to the areas around the joint. This not only allows for better healing but prevents recurrence of breakdown of the area in the future. Aggressive regenerative treatment of the hip can often prevent a need for a hip replacement.
Concentrated dextrose solution is the foundation of our regenerative treatments. When injected around the ligaments and deep muscles of the hip, it promotes ligament regeneration and mild cartilage repair. It stimulates and enhances both PRP and Stem cell’s regenerative potential.
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a stronger biocellular treatment. It promotes joint cartilage regeneration and repair of worn cartilage and ligament. PRP Prolotherapy technique is used in more advanced arthritic and degenerative cases. It directly delivers grown factors in the damaged tissue and activates a signaling mechanism that stimulates body’s stem cell production and recruitment to the site of injury. Repair and new tissue growth occurs quickly and naturally.
Stem Cell therapy is the most advanced regenerative technique available. Stem cells are extracted from either the bone marrow or fat and are immediately reinjected in and around the hip joint. Direct delivery of mesenchymal stem cells into the affected area allows for repair by growth of new healthy tissue.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy( OMT) is utilized during every physician encounter as needed for correction of hip joint restrictions. State of the art personalized one-on-one physical therapy is conducted to address restrictions, correct imbalances and promote strength of the supporting cervical and thoracic muscles. SpineForce is a revolutionary tool that is used to facilitate rehabilitation and allow for independent exercise during and after the corrective treatment phase. Private and small exclusive therapeutic Yoga classes are prescribed for gentle strengthening and relaxation of the chronically overused neck, upper back and shoulder muscles. Yoga also addresses stress related causes of neck pain through teaching of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and breathing techniques. Yoga program is typically instituted after completion of the physical therapy and rehabilitation program. It is used in conjunction with SpineForce for continued improvement of postural balance, conditioning, and strength.
