Any problem that develops in your musculoskeletal system forces you to realize just how much you rely on that area — which is especially true of your hips. Their role in supporting your upper body while providing crucial mobility is made abundantly clear when they’re compromised, limiting your life in ways you hadn’t thought possible.
At our practice, Dr. Henry Small and our team are orthopedic specialists who fully understand the impact that hip pain and discomfort can have on your life. With the goal of helping you regain pain-free movement, we offer a highly effective solution for hips that are holding you back.
Behind your hip pain
Given their workload, it’s little wonder that hip pain can develop, especially as you get older and the wear-and-tear over the years begins to catch up with these large ball-and-socket joints. The primary culprits behind hip pain include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis, as well as psoriatic arthritis
- Trauma, such as a fracture or dislocation
- Hip labral tears
The most common diagnosis when it comes to hips that are holding you back are degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis.
Restoring pain-free movement
At our practice, we believe in working with the human body for sustainable results rather than taking an interventional approach, such as surgery. We recognize that there’s a time and place for procedures like hip replacement surgery, but not before exhausting less risky options.
One area that’s showing great promise in remedying joint pain is regenerative medicine, namely stem cell therapy. Stem cells are perhaps one of the human body’s greatest resources as they have the unique ability to transform themselves into different cells and then multiply indefinitely as that cell.
Stem cells are most potent and numerous during embryonic development, which makes sense given that they’re tasked with creating a human body. As an adult, you still have stem cells in your body, but they are far less numerous and powerful.
Through our stem cell therapy, we use stem cells that are ethically sourced from umbilical cord blood. These stem cells are collected immediately after birth (with permission, of course) and processed in an FDA-approved laboratory.
We then inject this stem cell concentrate into your hip joints to encourage rebuilding and repair in your damaged tissues. By creating the ultimate healing and regenerative environment using powerful stem cells, our goal is to resolve your hip problems from within for more sustainable results.
If your hips are holding you back, please contact our office in Houston, Texas, to learn more about how stem cell therapy can help move you forward.
