Hip Pain

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain is a very common issue today, especially among seniors. There are many possible reasons for hip pain, with some of the most common being:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Labral tear
  • Sciatica
  • Fractures
  • Age-related joint deterioration

Hip pain can develop after accidents as well, but usually it’s a chronic problem that tends to grow worse over time. If you get treatment early, you can be pain-free and possibly avoid surgery. With regenerative medicine treatments like stem cell therapy, you can even get back to a pain-free life without needing potentially addictive medications.

What other problems go along with hip pain?

Hip pain is usually accompanied by other symptoms. You could have some or all of the following issues:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Range-of-motion problems
  • Swelling around the hip
  • Uncomfortable warmth around the hip
  • Sleeping difficulties because you can't rest comfortably

Sometimes, hip pain can radiate, meaning that it shoots down your buttocks or thigh. For many hip pain sufferers, these symptoms can combine to significantly detract from your quality of life.

But the good news is that you don’t have to keep struggling and suffering. Dr. Small has 30-plus years of orthopedic medicine experience, and he offers customized treatments to help you overcome hip pain for the long term.

How is hip pain treated?

The treatment can vary according to the cause of your pain, how intense your pain is, and how your hip pain is affecting your life. In many cases, regenerative medicine therapy using stem cell injections is a powerful and highly effective solution.

Stem cells are your body’s most adaptable cells. They’re unassigned, meaning they don’t have a specific function. Stem cells can change into nerve, ligament, cartilage, muscle, or whatever type of tissues that you need. Dr. Small injects the stem cells into your hip, typically in the joint, so they can go to work replacing damaged tissue.

Dr. Small uses stem cells that are ethically sourced from umbilical cord blood. The cord blood is obtained immediately following a healthy birth with the mother’s express permission, and it then goes straight to an FDA-approved laboratory for processing and concentration. This ensures that you get only the safest and highest quality stem cells for your hip pain treatment.
