If your sore hips are causing you to miss out on activities with friends and loved ones, advances in regenerative medicine may help. Imagine alleviating your hip joint pain without having to get a hip replacement. The goal of regenerative therapy at our Ocean County, New Jersey medical clinic is to heal injured tissue and not just mask the pain.
Hip Joint Pain Relief
Many people suffering from hip pain have been told that prescription medication or hip replacement surgery is the only choices for pain relief. Pharmaceuticals only mask the symptoms without addressing the underlying cause of your pain. These medications may have harmful side effects or become addictive. Or, your body could build up a tolerance to them, making these drugs ineffective for long-term pain relief. Hip replacement surgery is a complicated surgical procedure with its own set of complexities.
Hip Pain Treatment
Now, you can significantly reduce the need for hip surgery by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses any further. We offer regenerative therapies, which takes advantage of your body's ability to heal your chronic hip pain.
The regenerative cellular tissue used in our treatments contain proteins and growth factors that once injected into your painful hips, regenerate damaged or degenerative tissues for the treatment of chronic or acute hip pain. These treatments contain mesenchymal stem cells with the ability to form various connective tissues. These cells are capable of differentiating into more developed cells types like muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone to adequately address the root cause of your pain.
The mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors used in our treatments are sourced from tissue banks that adhere to strict standards and guidelines for how these bioactive materials are obtained, prepared, and delivered. Consenting mothers, who have been thoroughly prescreened, donate this birth tissue during a cesarean section. No harm comes to the baby or mother during the collection process, so there are less ethical concerns with this form of regenerative therapy than embryonic stem cell therapy.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a solution with a high concentration of platelets collected from a sample of your blood. Platelets are already a key player in your body’s natural healing process, and we harness and amplify their capabilities. These platelets release millions of specialized healing proteins, which also attracts stem cells to the affected to accelerate natural healing.
The PRP procedure is safe, non-surgical, and is performed as an outpatient procedure by our qualified doctor.
