Your hip is a foundation for your body’s strength, stability, and support. If you’re suffering from hip pain, you might feel immobilized, useless, and desperate for relief. But don’t despair. Our doctor is well-versed in all-natural hip pain relief treatments and has successfully treated many cases, just like yours.
Hip Pain Symptoms
The first step in addressing your hip pain symptoms is to properly diagnose the source of the pain. Dr Wiedner will ask you questions like:
- Do you have pain when walking?
- Do you have pain at night?
- If you have pain at night - is it when you're lying on your side?
- Is this a burning pain?
- Would you call your pain severe?
- Have you undergone any pain treatment previously?
Hip Joint Pain Relief
Chiropractic care provides patients with a safe option for hip discomfort or pain relief. When your bones are out of place, especially the vertebrae in your back, it can place a significant amount of pressure on other joints like your hips. Compression can also impact your sciatic nerve, which may be contributing to your level of pain. Chiropractic adjustments reduce inflammation and improve both the skeletal and nervous system. Spinal decompression can relieve your pain by carefully stretching your spine and returning discs to their proper place so they no longer put pressure on your sciatic nerve.
Regenerative medicine is the premise of all-natural healing and pain relief. It focuses on amplifying the human body’s own healing power by using powerful cells capable of renewing, repairing, and replacing damaged tissue.
Treatments containing stem cells and natural growth factors are one of these revolutionary treatments. Your body already has stem cells that facilitate healing, but their ability to regenerate decreases with age. Our stem cell treatment involves injecting young donor cells in order to provide your body with the most effective source of healing.
Credible tissue banks supply the cells for our treatments. These tissue banks are in compliance with the FDA and the American Association of Tissue Bank's regulations and standards. They collect healthy and young cells from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical cords via allograft. Wharton’s jelly contains an especially high number of stem cells, which make for highly effective hip treatments.
During our stem cell treatment, healthy mesenchymal stem cells are readily taken up by your system. They will divide into whatever tissue cells—bone, muscle, tendon, or otherwise—are in need of renewal at the site of your pain. When an injury or degeneration is healed and strengthened, your pain will disappear.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are another part of regenerative medicine. PRP treatment is developed from a small volume of your blood, and then we separate the platelets from other blood cells, creating a sufficiently high concentration of platelets in plasma. PRP contains growth factors and proteins that will, when injected into your hip joint, promote regrowth and accelerate repair.
Hip Pain Treatment
Beyond regenerative medicine, there are other non-invasive hip pain treatments that can provide you with pain relief. Our doctors will not only diagnose your pain but give you the best treatment for your condition.
We also offer trigger point injections, which target muscular knots with an anti-inflammatory agent. These trigger points radiate pain to other areas of your body, and they don't necessarily need to be around your hip. We will identify these painful points and inject a plant-based serum into the muscle, so it relaxes. This relief can last for weeks, and we’ll assist you in other medical treatment options to bring about long-term recovery.
For hip pain and injury relief, we also treat patients with laser therapy, a method of exposing damaged tissue to low levels of red and near-infrared light. The light energy penetrates the targeted area, which reacts to reduce inflammation and improve circulation—both of which promote healing.
Causes of Hip Pain
Hip injuries and pain can be caused by overuse, inactivity, or disease. Since the hip is a large and complex joint, any muscle strain or forceful movement can be detrimental to your mobility. Pain when walking, sciatica, hip injuries, or a hip dislocation might lead to severe pain and can leave you immobile. So, it’s critical that you get treatment when you notice persistent or chronic pain.
