How Can Regenerative Therapy Help With Hip Pain and Hip Arthritis?

Regenerative therapy focuses on harnessing the body’s natural healing abilities to promote tissue repair and regeneration. Stem cell therapy, in particular, involves using stem cells to stimulate the growth of new cartilage and reduce inflammation in the hip joint. This non-surgical approach may provide relief from pain and improve joint function for individuals with hip arthritis.
