PRP Therapy for hip arthritis can help patients avoid or delay the need for a hip replacement, and it's often covered by insurance!
Orange County, California (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
The top stem cell therapy clinic in California, TeleHealth, is now offering PRP therapy for hip arthritis. The treatments are often able to delay or avoid the need for joint replacement, and are administered by Board Certified doctors at two clinic locations. Call (888) 828-4575 for more information and scheduling.
Tens of millions of Americans suffer from hip arthritis, and hundreds of thousands of hip replacements are performed every year. Nonoperative treatments prior to joint replacement often consist of steroid injections for pain relief. While the joint replacement typically has excellent pain relief outcomes, there are risks involved and sometimes the eventual need for a revision procedure.
Therefore, a procedure that offers pain relief while offering the potential for joint repair is a welcome option in hip arthritis management. TeleHealth is now offering platelet rich plasma therapy, known as PRP therapy for short, to provide pain relief and potential joint regeneration. The procedure involves a simple blood draw at the office, with the blood then being spun down in a centrifuge to obtain a solution of concentrated platelets and growth factors.
The PRP is then injected into the symptomatic hip, providing an immense amount of regenerative medicine to the arthritic joint. The material then calls in the body's stem cells as well. Published studies on PRP for joint arthritis have so far shown excellent results for pain relief.
Often times, PRP therapy at TeleHealth is covered by insurance. Verification by the clinic is able to check prior to the procedure. Patients are seen from all over Southern California for treatment of hip, knee and shoulder arthritis along with tendonitis and ligament injury. This often includes athletes, weekend warriors, executives, senior citizens and more.
