Regenerative Hip Pain/Non-Surgical Solutions in South Portland

Regenerative Hip Pain Therapy and Non-Surgical Treatments at Med Matrix

The hip is an incredibly vital and hardworking joint within the human body. It plays a crucial role in our daily activities, from standing and sitting to walking and lifting. Unfortunately, over time, due to wear and tear, injuries, or the aging process, the hip can deteriorate and lead to discomfort and pain. This discomfort can vary from occasional, mild sensations to debilitating pain that can severely impact your quality of life. It doesn’t just hinder your favorite pastimes like golf or hiking; it can also make everyday tasks such as dressing or standing incredibly challenging.

Hip pain can arise from various factors, including direct trauma like sprains, fractures, or dislocations, as well as chronic medical conditions. As the years go by, hip joint pain becomes more common as the protective cartilage gradually wears down, making older individuals more susceptible to hip issues. Approximately one in seven seniors experiences significant hip pain. Conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis are frequent culprits. Many older patients also contend with the degeneration of support structures around the hip, which weakens the joint and leads to hip pain.

In the past, traditional remedies often involved the use of anti-inflammatory or pain-relief medications. Physical therapy, while effective, could be a painful journey for many. In certain cases, a corticosteroid injection might provide temporary relief. Otherwise, relying on a cane or walker has been the only non-surgical option for hip pain relief—until now.

Med Matrix’s regenerative medicine offers innovative alternatives for hip pain management, helping you regain control of your life and restore your activity levels.

Hip Paine: Understanding the Causes and Symptoms

Hip pain can stem from a variety of factors, and at Med Matrix, we’re here to help you understand and address your hip discomfort.

Hip Flexor Pain: Overuse and underuse can both lead to significant hip flexor pain. While this discomfort can be acute and limiting, it’s often manageable with a combination of therapeutic massage, targeted stretching, and specific exercises. Our experts at Med Matrix can guide you through effective pain management techniques.

Bursitis: Among the most common causes of hip pain is bursitis. This condition occurs when the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs within the hip joint, become inflamed. Normally, these sacs cushion the joint and reduce friction, but inflammation can hinder their function. As a result, muscles and tendons may experience pain and limited mobility. Bursitis is frequently associated with overuse, such as repetitive motions like running. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can also exacerbate inflammation in this area.

Other Causes of Hip Pain: Hip pain can arise from various sources, including:

Iliotibial Band Syndrome
Pinched Nerves
Bone Spurs
Calcium Deposits
Spinal Problems
Leg Length Discrepancies

Post-Surgical Hip Pain: In some cases, individuals experience lingering and debilitating hip pain following surgery. Even after the insertion of a prosthetic hip or repair of an existing one, patients may develop conditions like bursitis. This often necessitates intensive physical therapy to aid in post-surgical recovery. Our team at Med Matrix specializes in helping patients navigate these challenges and find relief.
