The hips support and move your full body weight, and are prone to overuse injuries. Over time, excessive rotation and straining can wear away at the components that comprise the hip joint, leading to chronic and extreme pain that can make simple acts like standing or walking unbearable. Other causes of ongoing hip pain include arthritis, tendonitis, inflammation, and lower back pain that radiates through the nearby hip nerves.
Even when hip pain is due to a chronic condition, effective and long-lasting pain relief is available. In addition to pain medications, technological innovations have led to exciting new treatments for hip pain.
Micro-Dosing. Micro-dosing is a safe pain relief alternative to potentially dangerous oral narcotics. Micro-dosing is the injection of low doses of pain medications directly to the area of the spine that is causing pain. It relieves the source of the pain, without the unwanted side effects of oral narcotics.
Regenerative Medicine. Regenerative medicine involves injecting natural cells (such as platelet-rich plasma or amniotic tissue and fluid) into a damaged joint. These cells encourage healing and creation of new, healthy cells to replace the damaged tissues that are the source of pain.
Coolief. This minimally-invasive, non-narcotic treatment for chronic pain uses Coolief radiofrequency ablation to deactivate the nerves that are sending pain signals to the brain.
