Many hip pain sufferers assume their only hope is a full hip replacement, a surgery that requires considerable recovery time and even more pain. That’s a common misconception: Today, there are advanced treatment options like intra-articular injections, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and stem cell treatment that can help alleviate hip pain without surgery. The expert team at the Staten Island and Hartsdale, New York, locations of Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management is ready to help you with your hip pain.

Hip pain occurs for many reasons. Some of the most common causes include:
If you're experiencing hip pain, it's important that you get evaluated as soon as possible. Hip pain tends to deteriorate if you don't receive the treatment you need.
Your doctor at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management performs a thorough evaluation of your hip to determine the cause of your hip pain. This includes a review of your medical history and symptoms, a hands-on exam, and range-of-motion tests. Often, the doctor uses an imaging test such as X-rays, CT scan, or MRI to identify complex issues or verify a diagnosis.
At Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management, hip pain relief doesn't have to include surgery. Two of the most effective healing treatments available are platelet-rich plasma therapy and stem cell therapy.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses platelets, one of the components of your blood, to help you heal. Your doctor injects platelets extracted from your own blood into your hip joint or into another area of your hip where you're experiencing pain or tissue damage.
Other treatment options include careful medication management, steroid injections (intra-articular injections), and medical marijuana.
Your doctor at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management works with you to create a treatment plan that gives you permanent hip pain relief. Thanks to today’s advanced healing techniques, only rarely do hip pain sufferers require surgery.
