Hip Q&A

Why does my hip hurt?

Hip pain isn’t a normal part of growing older; it’s a symptom of damage inside the hip joint or nearby tissues. Common reasons for hip pain include: 

  • Osteoarthritis: cartilage loss in the hip joint
  • Bursitis: inflammation in the gel-filled sacs that cushion the joints
  • Tendinopathy: tiny tears in the hip tendons
  • Labral tear: damage to the ring of cartilage (labrum) around the hip socket
  • Avascular necrosis: loss of blood supply to the hip joint, which can kill the bone

Hip pain can occur after minor injuries like mild muscle strains, but such injuries usually resolve with a short period of rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). 

When should I see the doctor about hip pain?

Reach out to Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center if you have ongoing hip pain that forces you to make changes in your daily life, you can’t bear full weight on your hip joint, or you can’t move normally. 

Or, if you’ve already tried conservative care and don’t feel any better, it might be time to move to the next level of treatment with a team of trusted regenerative orthopedics specialists. 

Can I treat hip pain without surgery?

Yes, in many cases, hip pain responds well to nonsurgical regenerative orthopedics. The team at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center offers leading-edge Regenexx injections to treat hip pain, stiffness, and mobility issues effectively without surgery. 

The injected substances contain powerful healing cells from your own body (blood platelets or bone marrow), which are concentrated for a supercharged healing effect. 

Regenexx helps your body restore the damaged hip joint without needing traumatic surgery. The procedures use ultrasound guidance to pinpoint the treatment area for optimal effect. 

How effective is Regenexx for hip pain? 

On average, patients who undergo Regenexx procedures already feel 34% better after one month and experience steady improvement afterward. 

The injections continue to stimulate healing and build new tissue for months after treatment, and they do so much faster than your body could achieve on its own.
