The hip joint is the largest joint in the body where your thigh bone meets the pelvis. It is also one of the most stable joints in the body, and for good reason; it must withstand a lot of forces and stresses throughout one's lifetime.
With many ligaments, tendons, and cartilage surrounding and stabilizing the joint, damage to this area can be very complicated.
The most common condition people experience in this joint is osteoarthritis, whether from overuse and "wear-and-tear," trauma/injury, or autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. As the structures weaken and bone begins to lose density, complications can be life-threatening.
Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal. The capacity for healing declines as you age, so things take longer and longer to heal. If the amount of damage being caused daily is greater than the body's healing capacity, the condition goes into a chronic state and will continue to get worse.
Here, at NexGenEsis Healthcare, we use cutting-edge technology and procedures to put the joint of concern in the best position to heal itself. We have seen countless patients who were told, "the only thing we can do for you is surgery," but after their time with us, most of them elect not to get surgery. They can now do things the way they want with the people they love, and that's what we are all about.
