Are you looking for a viable alternative to corticosteroid injections? If so, PRP or platelet-rich plasma injections may be the answer. Unlike hyaluronic acid, which has no proven benefit for hip osteoarthritis, PRP injections offer a safe and effective way to reduce pain and inflammation without the unpleasant side effects associated with steroid injections. Stem cell therapy is another regenerative therapy that can be used to facilitate cell repair. This type of therapy involves removing a patient's stem cells from their body and using them to repair damaged tissue.
Stem cells are present in our bodies both during gestational development and after birth, but only adult stem cells are used for orthopedic regenerative treatments. The use of PRP and stem cell therapy provides a viable alternative to corticosteroids and helps to prevent the harmful effects of steroids. These treatments are safe, effective, and can help reduce pain and inflammation without the need for steroid injections.
