How Does It Work?

The Aspen Institute’s PRP therapy can improve the symptoms of hip osteoarthritis by releasing natural proteins into the hip area that reduce inflammation. The injections also stimulate tissue and cartilage regeneration which can alleviate pain, improve joint function, and slow the disease’s progression.

The efficacy of PRP injections in treating hip osteoarthritis is supported by a study undertaken by the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Rehabilitation at New York Presbyterian Hospital. In the study, 67% of hip osteoarthritis patients reported more than a 50% reduction in pain after three months of treatment.

Benefits of PRP Therapy

Key benefits of the PRP injections from The Aspen Insititute include minimal side effects and quick recovery time in comparison with other common pain treatments such as cortisone shots or surgery. Typically, you will only experience mild pain or swelling after a PRP injection and will recover within a few days. In contrast, recovery from surgery often takes months and cortisone injections present a higher risk of serious side effects such as joint infection or cartilage damage.

Other Uses For PRP Injections

Alongside hip pain, PRP therapy is also a popular treatment for other musculoskeletal conditions, tendon injuries, and chronic pain. Furthermore, it can also be used for anti-aging purposes such as facial rejuvenation to promote skin elasticity and hair restoration.
