Non-Surgical Hip Pain Care Options

Hip Pain

In our over 25 years of helping people with hip pain, we have been able to help patients with a diagnosis of:

Hip osteoarthritis

Hip tendonitis

Hip bursitis

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome

Femoroacetabular Impingement Syndrome

Hip labrum tears

Avascular necrosis

For people who had arthroscopic, hip resurfacing and hip replacement surgery and continue to have hip pain. We may also be able to help.

Conservative care options:

For some people, conservative care non-surgical options can be very successful for their hip pain. For others, these treatment’s effectiveness may have worn off if they were effective at all.

We see many people who have had one, many or all of these treatments below:

Physical therapy

Cortisone injection

Hyaluronic acid injection

Painkiller prescriptions

Daily anti-inflammatory usage



These treatments continue to be prescribed until eventually an MRI will reveal enough damage to recommend a surgery.

Hip Pain Care Options

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate

Bone marrow concentrate or bone marrow aspirate concentrate is the injection into the damaged, injured area of the hip. The injection contains stem cells that have been drawn from the patient’s own bone marrow. These cells are “de-differentiated pluripotent” cells, which mean that they continue to divide to create more cells that can “morph” into the tissue needing repair—for our purposes, collagen needed for cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bone.

Short-Term Outcomes of Treatment of Hip Osteoarthritis With 4 Bone Marrow Concentrate Injections-A Case Series

In the medical journal Clinical medicine insights. Case reports. The study can be found here in its entirety: Short-Term Outcomes in Treatment of Hip Osteoarthritis With 4 Bone Marrow Concentrate Injections. A Case Series. Our research team published these findings on stem cell therapy used in four patients. Our results indicated show that patients experienced decreased resting and active pain compared with baseline and mean 72.4% total overall improvement. Patients also reported less difficulty in performing daily activities following the procedure. These results may not be typical.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

PRP treatments are injection treatments. The treatments are derived from your own healing and growth factors found in your blood. The treatment involves collecting a small amount of your blood and concentrating it in a centrifuge to separate the blood platelets from the red blood cells. The collected platelets are then injected back into the injured area of the hip to stimulate healing and regeneration to the soft tissue structures that stabilize the spine.
