Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Joints
Stem cell therapy for hip joints is fast becoming a popular non-surgical hip treatment for patients suffering from chronic pain critical joint. Stem cells are often referred to as the repairman of the human body. Stem cells treat hip joint conditions naturally in the human body when blood flows to areas that are damaged due to injury or disease. However, since the hip joint naturally has very little blood flow and many of painful hip conditions are characterized by inhibited blood supply, the natural stem cell treatment for hip conditions is impeded. Since the hip joint naturally suffers from low blood supply relative to other parts of the body, injuries to the hip joint are a great candidate for stem cell treatment.
At Florida Center for Regenerative Medicine utilize stem cell therapy as an alternative to hip surgery for degenerative hip conditions. Hip surgery is a painful and risky process with lengthy recovery times. We prefer to give the hip joint every opportunity to heal naturally with stem cell treatments before pursuing surgical options for hip conditions.

Hip Pain is one of the most common and painful ailments causing suffering amongst a significant portion of the population. The most recent statistics from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics report 2.9 million Physician visits yearly for hip pain treatment. Diagnosing and treating hip conditions is often difficult due to the complex and crucial nature of the hip joints and their surrounding ligaments. Hip pain is often experienced due to the onset of a degenerative disease or injury to one of the joints or bones that are part of its structure.

Hip Pain Causes
The Hip Joint is the body’s largest joint and is designed to withstand a remarkable amount of wear and tear over a lifetime. The main Hip joint is what's referred to as a (ball and socket joint) and fits together perfectly in a manner that allows for both fluid movement and stability when necessary. Although extremely durable due to its load bearing responsibility and constant movement, the hip joint and the tissue that surrounds it are prone to wear and tear over time. The cartilage that cushions and smoothes the operation of the femoral head and the hip socket degenerate over time increasing friction and leading to inflammation and pain. The muscles and tendons that connect to the hip bone suffer from overuse or injury. Often times the hip bone suffers from trauma due to a fall or car accident.
