PRP for Hips
Hip arthritis refers to the osteoarthritis that is said to be irreversible and progressive. Osteoarthritis occurrence is common in the knees and hips joint, leading to a degenerative tear and wear of the cartilage. It can affect anyone, regardless of age.
The only natural solution for hip joint osteoarthritis is cartilage repair. The majority of surgeons does not believe that is a solution once the cartilage wears out. They think that no solution could lead to repair or renewal of cartilage of the hip joint.
Is there a solution for repair and renewal of hip joint cartilage?
After years of research on regenerative medicine, procedures such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) have proven to reverse the paradigm. Hip arthritis can be seen at various levels of advancement. Unfortunately, the majority of patients wait until the hip arthritis is far much advanced.
Early treatment is generally preferred for almost all medical conditions, but often a major challenge. Scientists and regenerative medicine doctors such as Dr. Ronit Adler are now beginning to understand osteoarthritis much better and at a different angle. It is now not viewed as a simple tear and wear of the cartilage as it may also have genetic links, caused by inflammatory proteins and influenced by biochemical forces.
PRP is Superior to Addictive Medications for Pain Managment
It means that reliance on anti-inflammation medication cannot be a solution to the problem. Thus, the majority of patients are now looking for ways to avoid hip replacement, live healthier lives and remain fit. As a result, regenerative medicine presents the present and future for hip joint problems.
The hip labrum is part of the hip socket that ensures that the ball in the joint socket is stable. It can become torn, and the majority of hip surgeries aimed at repairing the tears have had negative results. There are many negative effects of the Arthroscopy surgery as it is usually an aggressive procedure.
PRP injections have proven to offer an amicable solution to the hip joint problem. This approach ensures quick recovery and is less invasive than surgery. It has worked for many patients with more advanced hip arthritis.
How does PRP for Hips work?
Platelet Rich Plasma has had positive results for many patients with advanced hip arthritis that could not be effectively treated through medical surgery.
The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains a vast array of platelets and growth factor, which help to kick-start the body’s own healing mechanism. In addition to growth factors, PRP has been know to help attract regenerative stem cells to the area of injection, further aiding the body to grow new tissue and cartilage around the hip joints. The importance of PRP is that it mimics the body response to injury through stimulation of platelet activation.
A Natural Alternative to Surgery
Tissues and cartilage repair using PRP injections have become easier and more studied in recent years. It is the best alternative to invasive surgeries. Again, why would you choose an aggressive and invasive hip Arthroscopy surgery when it’s clear that PRP injections could offer a better result with reduced risks?
You no longer need to go for a hip joint replacement; PRP therapy for hips provides you an effective solution to this problem.
