Is Your Hip Pain Serious?

Whether you’re getting older or lived through some rigorous athletic years in your youth, it seems inevitable that hip pain is something that we all will experience at one point or another,

While minor aches and pains may seem like something you can push through until the discomfort subsides, hip pain is an issue that you should never sweep under the rug.

Your body is a web of connected systems, and the hip is a part of the skeletal system that holds your body’s strength together (literally). Ignoring hip pain is only inviting further health problems and risk of injuries.

Let’s take a look at the biggest signs of hip pain being a serious issue and how Advanced Regenerative Medicine can help relieve pain without surgery or addictive medications.

1) Pain is Impacting Natural Functions

Pain is something that some people think they can just grin and bear through. However, if your hip starts to hurt in a way that impacts how you exercise, walk, and even sleep, this is a pain problem you must always address with a healthcare professional.

Letting pain that impacts such natural functions can lead to total loss of hip motion, which means increased pain and decreased quality of life.

2) You Cannot Bear Weight on a Leg

If you’ve developed a limp due to hip pain making it impossible for you to bear weight on one leg, this is a sign that your pain is quite severe and will only get worse. Even if your limp starts out as an acute issue, it’s only a matter of time before the pain and walking problem becomes chronic.

3) Difficulty Getting Dressed

Stiffness is one of the biggest indicators that your hip pain is more than just a one-off event. So, if you’ve discovered that your hip has become so stiff that you just can’t comfortably get your shoes, socks, and pants on, this is another sign that your hip pain is a serious problem.

4) Swelling and Tenderness

Finally, if you notice any swelling or tenderness in your hip, make sure that you keep an eye on it. Normal swelling should subside with treatment after a few days. However, if your swelling sticks around, you may have some underlying joint conditions that are here to stay.

How Can You Treat Pain Naturally and Effectively?

Sometimes you may be fortunate enough to have minor hip pain that can be rested off or relieved through hot and cold compresses.

However, if your hip pain stems from common issues like osteoarthritis or past injuries, then the chances are that your pain isn’t something that you can ignore.

Fortunately, a natural treatment relieves pain without the touch of a scalpel. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) solutions from Advanced Regenerative Medicine bring all-natural relief that lets you experience pain-free, fluid motion within your hips and other impacted joints.
