Would You Like to Cancel That Hip Surgery?

woman holding hip in painAccording to an article in Dynamic Chiropractic, January 2020, from 2000 to 2010, there was a 125% increase in total hip replacements. Hip replacements don’t offer a lifetime solution as the procedure lasts for about 20 years. Therefore, many people who get them will need yet another replacement as they get older. Unfortunately, we are seeing people at younger and younger ages needing knee and hip replacements.

Many people also elect to mask their pain with over-the-counter medications. The problem is that these only offer a short-term solution and don’t get to the root. As a result, the issue continues to recur.

A Non-Invasive Alternative to Surgery

The purpose of regenerative medicine (RM) is to combat the degenerative and aging processes in the body. Deterioration in the body is often referred to as osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and chronic pain. The only way to prevent degeneration is through regeneration. RM is natural and non-invasive, and it will improve the overall working of the joint you use it in.
RM is also suitable for patients of all ages and can be used on the following:

  • Back
  • Elbow
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Neck
  • Shoulder
  • Wrist

Types of RM Therapies

At Thrive Integrated Medical, we offer the following:

PRP, which is platelet rich plasma, and stem cell therapy.  Both have regenerative properties. We select the most appropriate therapy depending on the problem and the amount of damage to the joint.

A Patient Success Story

One of Dr. Berven’s patients has had knee pain fro many years. After having RM therapy, she can stand longer and walk farther without pain. It’s important to note that after an RM treatment, it takes 9-12 months for the healing process to complete. So this patient and others who receive RM can expect to improve even more.
