The hip is a very stable joint that can withstand a great amount of daily stress. When healthy, the joint allows patients to walk, run and jump effortlessly and pain-free. However, the hip joint can become injured from overuse, sports activities or a fall. Our physicians at OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine® are leading providers in the latest break-through for hip injuries, stem cell treatment for hips. A stem cell hip treatment can help a patient return to his or her daily life without pain by accelerating healing and regeneration after a hip injury without surgery.
Anatomy of the Hip
The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint responsible for bearing the body’s weight while standing, walking and jumping. As one of the most flexible joints in the body, it allows a wide range of motion. A round, cup-like structure known as the acetabulum forms the socket, while the rounded head of the femur forms the ball. The joint is then surrounded by a number of tough ligaments and muscles that help prevent dislocation.
