The Regenerative Clinic Can Help With Your Hip Pain!

The Regenerative Clinic Can Help With Your Hip Pain!

Have you been told your only option for hip pain is steroid injections or joint replacement surgery?

Minimally invasive regenerative alternatives offer pain relief and can help you get your lifestyle back!

Hip pain is difficult to live with on a daily basis but it can be treated with stem cell therapy, MFAT and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment.

The hip joint is a ball and socket structure and is made up of bone, cartilage and a thickened piece of fibro cartilage called the labrum. There is a joint capsule which is reinforced by ligaments.  The joint is surrounded by muscles which make the hip generally a stable joint.

The most common problem with the hip is osteoarthritis, which is degenerative and due to wear and tear. Osteoarthritis happens when inflammation and injury to a joint cause the cartilage tissue to break down. This causes swelling, pain and deformity.

There are many other structures around the hip which can cause pain. Bursitis can be very painful and occurs when the lubricating sacs near tendons become inflamed and fill with fluid.

Tendons (which attach muscle to bone) often become painful near the hip. The tendon can degenerate and lose its normal strong structured fibres and become thick and partially torn. This is called tendinitis.

If a hip problem is not corrected, long term pain management is required. Hip surgery, hip replacement surgery and hip resurfacing are often recommended to patients to help stop the pain. Hip surgery can be traumatic and is followed by months or recovery.

 

Hip conditions treated at The Regenerative Clinic

Hip conditions which can be treated with MFAT and PRP therapy include:

 

Our renowned medical team provides a range of treatments, from the traditional to the innovative:

Micro-fragmented Fat Injections (MFAT)

This day case treatment is exclusively offered to our patients. It uses pioneering technology using your body’s own adipose (fat) cells to treat pain and inflammation with MFAT Injections. Injections using MFAT Injections are minimally invasive and are carried out under ultrasound guidance. Altogether the procedure takes about an hour to perform with a minimal recovery time. As well as being a potential alternative to surgery, MFAT Injections can also aid post-surgery recovery.

This is an effective and well-researched procedure that’s a potential alternative to surgery. It takes advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to reduce pain and improve joint function. It uses a specially concentrated dosage of platelets prepared from your own blood to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscle and bone. Treatment is administered via an injection and depending on the injury two to six injections may be required, performed at weekly intervals. Patients usually see their symptoms improve within four to six weeks of having the injections. PRP is a safe treatment option which, because your own blood is used, carries no risk of allergic reaction. Read more clinical evidence supporting PRP here.

 

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, regenerative treatment that harnesses the natural ability to heal the body through the assistance of biological growth factors. BMAC utilises the regenerative stem cells collected from bone marrow to aid in the acceleration of healing moderate to severe osteoarthritis and tendon injuries. Read more here.
