Regenerative Medicine For Hip Degeneration

The hips are often the most used joint in the body, and over time take a lot of wear and tear. Hip degeneration is a condition that usually develops and worsens over a long period of time, and with the aging process. Some may not notice any symptoms in the first stages and they may appear suddenly. When the cartilage protecting and surrounding the hip bones begins to wear down, those bones can begin to rub together. This friction between the bones eventually causes severe pain, inflammation, and swelling. It may cause stiffness, limit the joint’s range of motion, or even lead to the development of bone spurs.
Advanced developments in regenerative medicine now make it possible to effectively treat pain from hip degeneration without prescription medications or steroid injections. In many cases, it may even help some sufferers avoid high-risk surgeries. Procedures like Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy take amniotic cells and use them to heal specific areas of damaged tissue. When inflammation and aging slow down the natural production of these cells, providing the body with them in concentrated levels, quickly reduces pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. This process provides support for the immune system to help heal damage and degeneration of the hip joint.
