Your hips are dependant on soft tissue to function well. If the cushioning cartilage in the synovial joints is attacked by a degenerative joint disease like hip osteoarthritis, they wear out. Our natural “shock absorbers” no longer protect the ball socket from being worn down by the rounded head of the thigh bone. Injuries to the hip, joint deformities, obesity, sports activities, even diet can exacerbate the development of osteoarthritis. The arthritic breakdown of the soft tissues may not be noticeable until the age of 50 when the arthritic process seems to accelerate for both men and women.
In the past, many patients chose artificial hip replacements, but with new treatment paradigms like Kinetic Regeneration Therapy (KRT), you can select alternative treatments that initiate natural healing processes that improve hip functionality and help reduce pain.
What are the symptoms of hip osteoarthritis?
- Stiffness or aching in the hips after sitting or rising from bed
- Persistent pain, swelling, or tenderness in the hip joint and groin
- Any feeling of grinding or crunching as bone scrapes bone
- Lack of mobility in hips such as problems putting on socks
Is there such a thing as a regenerative alternative to hip replacement?
Yes there is. Kinetic Regenerative Therapy (KRT) is a non-surgical, proactive approach that seeks to stabilize the hip, improve functionality and help to reduce pain. It is a low-risk, high-reward series of treatments that are steroid and opioid-free and helps your body heal itself.
To assess if regenerative treatments can help you, Dr. Scott Greenberg and his team will review your medical history and perform a Comprehensive Kinetic Diagnosis that includes a hands-on examination of the site of your physical complaint and all areas related to it. The diagnosis seeks to identify the root cause of your arthritis and create a roadmap for improving hip functionality.
Kinetic Regenerative Therapy includes Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments and Stem Cell Treatments. Dr. Greenberg may suggest one or a combination of the three. All three treatment modalities are excellent alternatives to pain management or surgery.
Kinetic Regeneration Therapy uses the body’s natural biological compounds to break the inflammatory cycle of arthritis. Your body’s own components will stabilize the affected joint and the surrounding area, and regenerate cartilage, bursae, ligaments and even strengthen bone structures and stop bone marrow lesions. KRT treatments are as minimally invasive as a blood draw and an injection. Dr. Greenberg will discuss the features of each treatment and explain the therapeutic option that is most appropriate for your case. The objective of the treatments is to improve hip functionality and help reduce pain.
Kinetic Regeneration Therapy is an excellent choice for people who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to hip replacement surgery. KRT decreases infection risks, shortens recovery times and is opioid-free. We work with you holistically. We renew you physically and try to raise your personal sense of wellness so you become a healthier YOU.
