Hip Replacement Patient Background
June 19th, 2019
Here we are presenting a case with this patient in her 70s who had a hip replacement years ago. She developed pain in the area of her hip replacement where she had heterotopic ossification and tendinitis along the outer hip. Her prosthesis was evaluated by the surgeon and found to be in good alignment, so she lived in pain for five years.
Combination Treatment Program
Since there was no hip joint, we determined her pain was coming from the muscle attachments to the hip and heterotopic ossification. She also had meralgia paresthetica where the nerves cascade over the area of the hip.
Positive Patient Outcome
We treated her with a combination of prolotherapy, PRP, and neural prolotherapy in three to four treatment sessions and we eliminated 95% of her pain.
This is a case that demonstrates the healing power of regenerative therapies and demonstrates that it can be beneficial with pain after replacement surgeries not only in the hip, but in other joints as well to promote healing in areas that never healed properly after the surgery.
