Abrupt falls. Repetitive movements. Autoimmune disorders. Menopause induced osteoarthritis (chronic cartilage degeneration and weak, brittle bones). The causes of hip pain are many, but the mobility and lifestyle disruptions of our body’s largest ball-and-socket joint are the same for all patients.
If you’re struggling with hip pain after running, hip pain at night, or even hip pain when sleeping, your cartilage may be in need of regeneration. Believe it or not, the power to stimulate your damaged cells’ regenerative potential, eliminate your pain, and revive your hip’s range of movement lies inside your own blood.
All thanks to Dr. Truong’s innovative PRP Therapy– the regeneration of your hip tissue via your own blood platelets.
If you want to avoid the risks, costs and down time of surgery, as well as the side effects of cortisone, the regenerative medicine team at Truong Rehabilitation Center can help. They’ve already delivered this natural, non- invasive therapy to hundreds of happy patients.
Sometimes taking hip joint pain relief medicine, or practicing physical therapy exercises for hip pain just don’t do the trick. Allow Dr. Truong to tap your body’s regenerative powers with PRP. Schedule this clinically validated hip pain therapy in Fredericksburg, VA by contacting us here.
Your blood is mainly composed of plasma that contains red cells, white cells, and platelets. Those platelets contain powerful proteins called growth factors, including:
Once separated from the rest of your blood, your platelet rich plasma can cause new blood vessels to form – as it carries growth factors in concentrations that can be 10 times greater than those in the rest of your blood. These proteins can also stimulate your damaged cartilage to regenerate.
Dr. Truong chooses PRP Therapy for hip pain because it’s: non-surgical, fast and simple, all-natural, non-allergenic, autologous (rejection and infection free), and very safe.
Be sure to discuss your medical history and medication use with Dr. Truong during your consultation. Having HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, or cancer may preclude you from PRP Therapy.
Once she determines you’re a good candidate for PRP, Dr. Truong will give you preparatory instructions. You’ll need to stop taking any anti-coagulant, steroid, and NSAID medications. You’ll also need to drink plenty of water.
At your appointment, Dr. Truong will make sure you’re completely comfortable before drawing a vial of your blood (typically less than two ounces). Then, she’ll process it in a centrifuge for approximately five minutes to extract the regenerative platelets.
Next, she’ll disinfect the skin on your hip, and, using an ultrasound for guidance, inject the PRP serum directly into your injured hip cartilage. The procedure takes anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes. If you experience some soreness afterwards, apply cold compresses. Dr. Truong may give you crutches to keep weight off of your hip while it’s healing
You should begin feeling the effects of PRP therapy about 6-7 weeks after your last hip injections. Pain relief, mobility and range-of-movement benefits may last up to 2 years. As with all medical procedures, your results will vary depending on your age, damage severity, genetics, general health, and follow up care.
Put an end to the soreness, throbbing, and limping. Over half a million successful PRP injections have resolved pain for patients worldwide. Will you be next? Schedule your consultation with Dr. Truong by contacting Dr. Truong here.
