Regenerative Medicine: Alternative to Hip Replacement SurgeryUnderstanding the Symptoms Of all the body pains, hip pains are the most difficult to handle since one relies on walking, sitting and lying down every day. Traditionally, the cure for hip pain encompasses long-term pain management as well as alternate therapies, if the problem is not corrected by a hip surgery. Surgery, combined with extensive medications and physical therapy, is the most frequently prescribed “cure” to remove hip pain. However, that is not the only cure available.
A hip replacement surgery is very traumatic and can lead to months of agonizing pain and discomfort, before any improvement can be observed, leaving patients at the mercy of heavy painkillers along with physical therapy to redevelop strength and restore mobility. At Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine, our Louisville regenerative medicine doctors rely on non-surgical procedures, like platelet rich plasma blood (PRP), prolotherapy/prolozone injections and stem cell therapy as a non-surgical treatment alternative for patients who are considering hip surgery to alleviate and resolve their hip pain and other symptoms.
At Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine, we help heal and alleviate a wide array of hip problems and symptomswithout relying on complicated hip joint replacement procedures. Our approach involves injecting the pain-stricken area with a concentrated dosage of the patient’s own stem cells. This allows the body to heal naturally as the somatic cells have the ability to regenerate and rejuvenate the tissue in and around the joint. After the stem cells have been successfully administered, Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine patients are encouraged to walk around the premises. Most of the patients report a significant improvement around their pelvic region and have no difficulty in walking, while reporting a significant improvement in their symptoms.
