Stem cell hip treatment is a non-surgical procedure that injects stem cells into the hip of the patient to help it recover from the injury. It is very difficult to lead your normal daily life when you suffer from hip pain. If you are suffering from hip pain for a long time, it is better not to ignore and get it corrected. Generally, treatment of hip pain required long-term pain management. If the condition is serious, the doctor might even recommend surgical treatments like hip replacement, hip resurfacing or hip surgery. These are common medical options that the patients are often proposed with.
The problem with such surgical procedures is that they require long treatment process, which means you have to deal with months of pain even after the surgery. Moreover, it will take a lot of effort to regain mobility and strength, which overall adds to the level of discomfort. So, what can you do when you want to reduce the recovery time from the procedure and even get back to normal mobility and strength real fast? The answer is stem cell hip treatment.
Here is a list of common hip conditions or injuries that stem cell procedures can treat.
• Labrum Tear
• Labral Tear
The hip joint is the ball-and-socket joint of the body that fits together allowing fluid movement that helps us to maintain mobility. This joint bear significant wear and tear due to the repeated motion. Whenever this joint is in action (e.g., when you run), a cartilage cushion prevents friction as the hip bone moves in the socket. This cartilage can get damaged or wear down with age or due to any accidental force. With age, the hip tendons and muscles get overused, which results in pain. In case of an injury resulting from a fall or an accident, the hip bones can break, which leads to pain. Here are some of the common hip injury causes:
Arthritis- Many older adults, who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, feel the hip pain that gets worse. This happens because arthritis causes hip joint inflammation and breaks down its cartilage cushion.
Tendinitis- Irritation or inflammation of the tendons (thick tissue bands attached to bone muscles) due to repetitive stress can cause hip pain.
Bursitis- Bursae are liquid sacs between hip bones, tendons, and muscles. When these tissues rubbing together, bursae ease that friction. However, overwork can cause inflammation of the bursae, which causes hip pain.
Hip Labral Tear- The labrum cushions hip joint like a rubber seal holding the ball securely at the top of the thigh bone within the hip socket. With repetitive twisting movements, the labral can tear and cause hip pain. The athletes are at higher risk to develop this problem.
Hip pain can be caused due to several conditions like we have mentioned above, and depending on the conditions, one can feel uneasiness in:
Outside/Inside of the hip joint
When you do some activities, the pain can get worse and it often happens to people who suffer from arthritis. Apart from pain, the range of motion can also get affected or even lead to the development of limp.
Stem cell utilization is the future of many treatment procedures and hip pain treatment is one of them. The healthcare experts can use stem cells for rebuilding cartilage and restoring bone density. Stem cells are not like the specialized cells in the body. It means that the stem cells can transform into another type of cell under proper experimental and physiologic conditions. Bone marrow is the typical source of such cells and these cells are used in stem cell hip replacement therapy.
The treatment starts by harvesting stem cells from the bone marrow for creating a concentrated formula after centrifuging it. Then the stem cell mixture formula is placed into the hip joint. This is followed by a rich plasma platelet injection. This procedure supports the growth of cartilage, which is essential to develop the new tissues of the hip joint.
In the case of hip surgery, the patients need to stay in the hospital for several days, which is followed by many months of physical training and therapy. Generally, the patients are advised not to do certain movements like twisting or bending for about one year. Even after the hip joints are healed post-surgery, the patients are not advised to do dancing, jogging, sports and any high impact activities. The restriction is quite less when you do stem cell treatment for the hip injury. The patients can resume normal life and activities within a very short period of time like three weeks after the injection, in most cases. They feel a significant reduction of pain regaining complete mobility of hip joints in the next few weeks.
• Reduces high levels of pain causing molecules
• Protect newly formed cartilage
• Faster recovery in comparison to hip replacement surgery
• Safe procedure as stem cell and platelet rich plasma is taken from own source (patient’s blood)
• Long-term benefit
The cost of stem cell hip treatment depends on the location that you have chosen and other factors like the facilities and packages of the clinics. The average cost of cartilage regeneration stem cell therapy in Czech Republic, India and many other countries is around $10,000.
To receive the best stem cell treatment for the hip injury, you should consult a good Orthopedist or Rheumatologist. You have to search for the clinics and doctors who are expert in the cartilage regeneration stem cell procedure. Stem cell treatment is the future of hip injury treatments, as it provides many benefits over the traditional hip replacement surgery.
