Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain

Introduction to Hip Pain

The hip is a complicated part of the body that contains several structures that can get injured easily. These include bone, ligaments, cartilage, muscles and the labrum. There are many causes of the hip condition, but the most popular ones include hip bursitis, hip arthritis, degeneration, osteonecrosis and hip tendinopathy.

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that affects most of the body parts including the hips. The hip condition can affect your daily activities including restricting your movement when not treated on time. Many medications have been used to try to treat the hip conditions but there has not been a lot of success recorded by doctors. Medications such as hip replacement surgery to resurface the hip has been used for long although it comes with a lot of trauma, pain, and discomfort to the patients.

A new type of solution has been discovered that can be used to solve the problem completely and get you back to your feet again. Stem cell therapy is a new form of treatment that has been discovered by researches and has proven to be very effective in treating hip conditions. It involves a non-surgical treatment procedure to help treat people suffering from hip-related conditions. The most encouraging part for patients suffering from hip conditions is that the medication uses the natural body mechanism to treat the condition.

How Stem Cell Therapy is Used to Treat the Hip Pain

Stem cell therapy procedure uses the stem cell extracted from the umbilical cord Wharton Jelly and injected into the affected area. The stem cells have a unique feature that allows them to develop into any type of cell. For instance, they can develop cells that help in repairing the damaged tissues in the body. The stem cells that we commonly use to treat the hip condition are stem cells extracted from umbilical cord Wharton Jelly. When the stem cell is injected into the arthritis hip, they transform into chondrocytes, the cells that lead to the production of fresh cartilage. They then repair the damaged cartilage cells by encouraging them to re-grow and heal. Since most hip conditions come with inflammation problems, the stem cells can reduce the inflammation.

A lot of research is still being carried out to analyze how stem cell therapy works, but based on the clinical trials, it has been shown that when the stem cell is injected in the affected area, it relieves pain and reduces swelling, therefore, speeding up the recovery process.

The injected stem cells can attract new cells to the damaged area helping the body to repair itself faster and managing inflammation. The cells also prevent the scars in the area. After the client has booked the appointment, it takes a maximum of 14 days to cultivate the cells. This will allow the potency and concentration of the cells to increase before they are used. The stem cell therapy is very effective and takes a short time to produce results. After the injection, it can take two to six weeks to see the full outcome of the procedure.

The Expectations After Using Stem Cell Therapy

After stem cell therapy, there are some things you need to do to ensure you recover fully from the hip condition. You should avoid using anti-inflammatory drugs like the ibuprofen for sometimes to allow the injury to heal completely. This is because the biologic materials stimulate the body’s inflammatory response that plays an important role in the healing process.

In case you are experiencing swelling after treatment, you can use the ice pack and rub it in the area. You should avoid activities that can force you to strain the hip area to give ample and enough time for the damaged tissues to heal. You can use crutches to move around to avoid putting much weight on the hip joint.

The Researches that Support stem cell therapy for hip condition treatments

We have conducted different research to support the effectiveness of stem cell therapy in treating hip conditions. We use mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cord Wharton jelly to improve the quality of life of our patients. Our outcomes are typically positive, and our patients show improvement in their recovery.

A research that was done at the Mayo clinic also indicates that when stem cells are used uniformly in the affected area, the patients showed a lot of improvement with positive income. Another research that was conducted in France, also indicated that stem cell therapy with mesenchymal stem cells can repair the bone damage in the hips with long term results.

All this research has shown that stem cell therapy can now give new hope to patients suffering from hip conditions. It involves a non-surgical procedure that makes it more tolerant and safer. Also, it reduces complications like body reaction due to rejection and inflammation after treatment. Stem cell therapy can restore hip function and mobility completely with less pain. There is no need for surgery because the damaged tissues will be regenerated normally.

Candidates for Stem Cell Therapy

It is important to see the stem cell doctor before deciding to start stem cell treatment. The following are some of the people we consider as the best candidates for stem cell therapy:

  • People suffering from arthritis around their hips
  • Those who wish to use natural body mechanism to regenerate and treat their hip condition.
  • Those who don’t want to go through surgery
  • Those who have risk factors for surgery
