Non-Surgical Hip Treatments
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint and consists of bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Hip problems may arise if any of these structures are injured by overuse or suddenly during sports activities.
Hip joint injections involve injecting medicine directly into the hip joint to diagnose the source of pain or treat pain due to conditions such as arthritis, injury or mechanical stress of the hip joint.
Physiotherapy is one of the treatment modalities to treat orthopedic conditions where specially designed exercises and equipments help patients restore their normal physical activities.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a newer modality of treatment for the management of many orthopedic conditions including sport injuries. RBC (red blood cells), WBC (white blood cells), plasma, and platelets are the major components of blood. Platelets are small discoid blood cells with granules containing clotting and growth factors which are released during the healing process.
