Hip dislocation occurs when the ball is pushed out of the socket in the hip joint. Hip dislocation can be a particularly painful injury, especially when the dislocation affects the sciatic nerve. Most hip dislocation injuries occur from impact, such as through accidents or contact sports. Full Range Spine & Ortho provides non-invasive hip dislocation treatment in Los Angeles and Hollywood, CA.
The femoral head of the humerus can either be pushed forward or backward out of the socket. The typical hip dislocation is toward the rear. Often, additional injury is caused to surrounding muscles, tendons, blood vessels, nerves and soft tissues. Sciatic nerve damage and avascular necrosis (bone death) are also possible complications.
The hip pain and obvious restricted movement can point to hip dislocation, but an orthopedic specialist will need to determine the type and severity of dislocation using advanced imaging, such as x-rays, CT scans or MRI. Once your hip dislocation is verified and examined, an appropriate treatment plan can be recommended.
Non-Invasive Hip Dislocation Treatments in Woodland Hills, Encino
Many hip dislocations can be manually reducted while the patient is under anesthesia. This involves the orthopedist manually pushing the femoral head back into the hip socket. However, surrounding ligaments, tendons, muscles, and other soft tissue may need help to facilitate healing. Dr. Roy Nini uses regenerative medicine therapies to help your body’s natural healing abilities.
Biological treatments, such as PRP and stem cell therapy, can add concentrated growth factors right at the point of injury to boost healing, resulting in the reduction of pain and inflammation. They can also provide healing elements to strengthen the cartilage and tendons of the hip joint to help prevent future hip dislocations.
Other non-invasive treatments for a dislocated hip joint can include NSAIDs, joint injections, A2M and physical therapy to strengthen the damaged area after healing.
