There is no “best” regenerative therapy for the hip, as the therapy recommended will depend entirely on the injury presented. APS, PRP, and stem cell injections are delivered to the site of injury under precise ultrasound guidance and are highly effective at relieving pain and preventing the need for future surgeries. Beyond Biologics™ staff takes great care to explain to patients the costs and benefits of all therapeutic options.
Depending on the type of therapy for your hip pain or injury, your provider will let you know want to expect and how to prepare for it. You may be asked to drink plenty of fluids the day before the procedure, or stop taking certain medications 2 to 3 weeks prior to the procedure. In any case, these details will be discussed with you so that you can prepare for your treatment and, if needed, make practical arrangements such as requesting to be off work, or arranging for a child or pet care.
Serious risks or complications following hip pain injections are extremely rare. As APS, PRP, and BMAC and Lipogem injections are non-surgical procedures, patients need not worry about the risks that come with operations, such as anesthesia, blood clots, added pain during recovery, and more.
The side effects of hip injections align with what one might expect, with the most common effect being hip pain for 24-28 hours after the injection, or swelling and bruising at the injection site. In the vast majority of cases, this discomfort is quick to subside. In fact, many Beyond Biologics™ patients go to work or continue on with their day immediately following an injection. Severe complications, such as those a patient might experience after surgery, are very rare.
Many patients report being pain free following the hip pain injection, and patients have also reported using less pain medication and gaining greater joint motion. Overall, patients get back to regular daily activities with greater speed and ease than they otherwise would with surgery or other traditional treatments. It is often recommended that patients perform stretching and strengthening exercises after the injections as part of a home exercise program. Gentle stretching for the muscles around the injected area can usually be started immediately after the injection; however, strengthening exercises should not begin immediately, as the tissues require healing time after the injection before being heavily stressed.
For athletes, sport-specific exercises such as throwing or simulated sport drills will be gradually encouraged as soon as possible. Others may require a home exercise plan before returning to a full occupational workload or activities such as gardening or housecleaning. For athletes and non-athletes alike, your Beyond Biologics™ provider will discuss the most appropriate return-to-sport or activity plan for you after a APS, PRP, or BMAC and Lipogem injections and will advise you on the acceptable level of activity at each stage of your rehabilitation process.
Most Beyond Biologics™ patients are able to return to work or continue on with their day following the hip pain injection. Patients generally notice improvement 2 to 6 weeks after their treatment. However, there are factors that can affect the treatment’s efficacy such as the type and site of injury or pain. There are a number of clinical studies showing that the results of effective regenerative therapy for the hip can last for years.
Following APS, PRP, or BMAC and Lipogem injections in the hip, it is best to have someone drive you home after the treatment. It is advised to limit the activity related to the injection site. Light walking and the activities of daily life are okay. Your provider will let you know when you can return to higher-level activities like cycling, running, etc.
Many insurance plans do not cover regenerative therapies such as APS, PRP, or BMAC and Lipogem injections for hip pain. Unfortunately, this means that patients often pay for treatment out-of-pocket. Though the out-of-pocket expenses are not ideal, injection therapies cost vastly less than the surgical alternative. To get an idea of what your treatment would cost, it is best to contact Beyond Biologics™ directly.
