If left unaddressed, hip degeneration can significantly reduce the quality of your life. Dr. M. Scott White, D.C. of New Life Laser in Woodbridge, VA can help. Dr. White will assess your condition to determine whether or not you are experiencing hip degeneration and provide you with the most effective combination of treatments possible.
What is Hip Degeneration?
Hip degeneration is osteoarthritis of the hip. This means your hip joints are inflamed due to arthritis. Swelling and chronic pain can result from this, making it hard to move around throughout the day.
Causes of Hip Degeneration
Causes include age, carrying too much weight, and injuries. Other causes include excessive strain on the joints through exercise and weight, improper joint development, and genetic faults in the cartilage area. As people get older, they are more likely to develop this type of osteoarthritis.
Symptoms of Hip Degeneration
Symptoms of hip degeneration include:
- Nerve pain and joint pain
- Inflammation of the hip
- Stiffness of the joint
- Inability to complete simple daily tasks
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact us to get checked right away for hip degeneration. We can also check to see if you have knee degeneration or spinal degeneration since joint and nerve pain can also be symptoms of these conditions.
How We Can Help
Dr. M. Scott White, D.C. can help relieve your nerve pain, joint pain, and other symptoms of hip degeneration. Deep tissue robotic laser, a type of MLS laser therapy, and regenerative medicine are methods Dr. Scott uses to relieve patients with hip issues, neuropathy, and more.
Deep tissue robotic laser therapy involves the use of a strong laser on a specific part of the body. The laser helps heal damaged cells, which in turn can heal your hips and other damaged areas in a painless way. MLS laser therapy stimulates blood flow to the damaged area, which also helps heal the cells in the hip.
Dr. White can also help you if you have spinal degeneration, knee degeneration, and neuropathy issues. The combination of treatments you will receive will vary depending on the location and severity of your pain and immobility.
