Hip Injuries.

Stem cell treatment.

The hip is the joint where the thigh bone (femur) meets the pelvis. It has two main parts: A ball at the end of the femur, which fits into the socket of the pelvis. Your hip is known as a ball and socket joint, this is because it has a ball at the end of the femur that fits inside the socket of the pelvis. This makes the hips very stable and allows for a wide range of motion. When the hips are healthy, they are not often injured. 

However, the practice of some sports such as running, jumping, cycling or high-risk sports that can cause falls can lead to injuries to the hips:

Some diseases can also lead to injuries or problems with the hips. Osteoarthritis can cause pain and limit movement. Osteoporosis in the hip causes bones to weaken and break easily. Both are common in older people.

Another problem is hip dysplasia, where the ball at the end of the thighbone is loose in the hip socket. It can cause hip dislocation. Babies who have hip dysplasia are usually born with it, but sometimes develop it later.

Treatment for hip problems may include rest, medication, physical therapy or surgery, including hip replacement. At Novastem, we have stem cell treatments for hip injuries that increase patients’ quality of life.

Benefits of Using Stem Cell Treatment for Hip Injuries

The hip joint is formed by the junction between the bones of the pelvis and the femur. Where the two meet, the femur is shaped like a sphere, this sphere of the femur fits into a socket that exists in the pelvis, forming a perfect gear that allows the femur to move in many directions. This joint is covered with cartilage, which is the tissue that facilitates the movements between the bones and prevents them from rubbing directly bone on bone.

The fundamental symptom is pain, of insidious, deep and poorly localized onset (neck or lumbar region pain), difficulty in movement and contracture of the muscles of the affected region. The pain may appear when performing mechanical activities, such as movements and overloads in the affected area. In addition, changes in weather and pressure often aggravate the pain. As the disease progresses, pain may occur with rest or nighttime rest.

The goal of stem cell therapy is to relieve pain, joint stiffness and improve functional capacity.
