When to Consider PRP Therapy for Your Hip Pain

When to Consider PRP Therapy for Your Hip Pain

Your hips are the largest ball-and-socket joints in your body. They give you an incredible range of motion and support your entire body when you walk, stand, and sit. They get a lot of use over the years, so it’s no surprise that these joints are particularly susceptible to injury, degeneration, and pain.

Adults of all ages experience hip pain, and your risk increases as you age. In fact, about 15% of adults over age 60 suffer chronic hip pain.

Hip pain is very common, and treatment options are plentiful — but unfortunately, that doesn’t mean finding effective pain relief is easy. If you’ve tried traditional treatments without relief, it’s time to learn more about the benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.

Daniel Moghadam, MD, and our team at Modern Aesthetica specialize in PRP, a regenerative therapy to heal joints and relieve pain, and it could be the hip pain solution you’ve been waiting for.

When to consider PRP therapy for hip pain

Your hip joints are a complex combination of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Pain often results when any part of the joint gets damaged. Some of the most common causes of hip pain are:

Fortunately, Dr. Mogahadam has experience relieving these conditions with PRP therapy. And it might be time to consider PRP therapy for your hip pain if…

Your hip pain limits your everyday life

Most people experience acute hip pain now and then. Acute soreness and stiffness should go away in a few days without limiting your daily routine, whether you had a challenging workout or slept in an awkward position.

On the other hand, chronic pain from injury or degeneration is much more invasive. It restricts your mobility and your everyday life, forcing you to change your routine and avoid physical activity. PRP therapy stimulates healing from the inside, so you can return to the things you love.

Your current treatment isn’t effective enough

If you’ve been diagnosed with hip pain, your health care team probably prescribed treatment to relieve pain. A few of the most common treatments are rest, activity modification, pain medication, and physical therapy.

Unfortunately, traditional treatments don’t work for everyone. And if you’ve tried these other common options without finding the pain relief you need, PRP therapy could offer more significant results.

You want an all-natural pain solution

Many providers recommend pain medication and other drugs to manage hip pain. PRP therapy might be right for you if you’re hoping for a more natural pain remedy.

PRP comes from your own blood. It contains platelets, growth factors, and other natural elements and doesn’t rely on drugs to promote healing.

Dr. Moghadam and our team take a small sample of your blood, use it to prepare your PRP serum, then inject it in and around your painful joint. The PRP triggers healing within the joint, reducing pain and inflammation naturally over time.
