Are you looking for ways to speed up your hip injury recovery? Stem cell injection therapy may be an option for you. This emerging medical treatment involves extracting stem cells from a donor, culturing them in a lab, and injecting them directly into the injured area. This procedure has been studied for its potential to repair tissue, reduce inflammation, and even regenerate cartilage. While it is not a cure-all, research suggests that stem cell injections may offer some hope for individuals suffering from a hip injury.

This article will discuss the current evidence supporting stem cell injection therapy as a viable option for healing a hip injury, its risks, and if it could be the right choice for you. Read on to learn more about this exciting therapy.


What is Stem Cell Injection Therapy?

Stem cells are unspecialized cells that can develop into different types of cells. They can repair and replace damaged tissue and maintain healthy tissue. Stem cell injection therapy involves injecting stem cells directly into the affected body area.

The stem cells used in this therapy typically come from umbilical cord blood, amniotic fluids, or various tissues. These stem cells are then purified and prepared for injection into the affected area. The process typically involves a single injection, but some procedures administer multiple injections depending on the severity of the injury.

After completion of therapy, the stem cells can help to repair and regenerate damaged tissue by providing healthy cells to replace the damaged ones, helping to speed up the healing process and reduce pain and inflammation.

Stem cell injection therapy is an increasingly popular treatment option for various conditions, including hip injuries. It is most effective when combined with other traditional treatments, such as physical therapy or surgery.

Can Stem Cell Injections help Heal the Hip?

Stem cell therapy is becoming increasingly popular in the medical community, especially for those suffering from hip injuries, for its capacity to aid in healing and provide pain relief.

These stem cells help promote the body’s natural healing process because stem cells can replicate themselves and differentiate into specialized cells, such as cartilage cells. These cells can heal damaged tissues in the hip joint, promote cartilage repair, reduce inflammation, and provide pain relief.1

Stem cell injections can reduce inflammation and stimulate the production of new cartilage, which can be beneficial in healing damaged tissue. Studies2 have also shown that these injections can help reduce pain and stiffness associated with hip injuries.

However, it’s important to note that stem cells used in conjunction with other traditional treatments will achieve the best results. It is also worth mentioning that not everyone will experience the same benefits from stem cell therapy, and individual results may vary.

Are there any Side Effects to Stem Cells for Hip Healing?

The potential side effects of stem cell injections for hip healing vary depending on the specific therapy used and the person receiving treatment. Generally, there is little risk associated with these treatments, though some patients may experience soreness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.

It is important to note that stem cell therapy does not replace standard treatments and requires medical consultation with a qualified healthcare provider. A qualified doctor will evaluate a patient’s overall health before initiating any form of stem cell therapy to minimize risks.


Stem cells act as building blocks, boosting natural healing processes and helping reduce inflammation, pain, and discomfort. With the guidance of an experienced doctor, stem cell therapy can help heal and repair the hip joint, alleviating symptoms and promoting recovery in a shorter period.

Stem cell injection therapy can help your hip heal faster due to its ability to stimulate the regeneration of healthy tissues. With the guidance of an experienced doctor, this therapy can help reduce inflammation, repair damaged tissues, and even promote bone growth around the hip joint. This results in decreased pain and improved mobility, allowing you to recover faster from hip issues.

Stem Cell & Exosome IV Therapy - Frequently Asked Questions

How can Stem Cell IV therapy help you?

Stem cell IV therapy is a way to promote healing and repair damaged tissue throughout the body. By delivering high-quality, mesenchymal stem cells directly into the bloodstream, stem cell IV therapy can provide targeted treatment for a variety of injuries and conditions, including chronic pain, arthritis, cognitive functions and more.

Additionally, stem cell IV therapy can support overall health and well-being by providing essential vitamins and nutrients that can boost the immune system and promote healing.

At Drip Hydration, our stem cell IV therapy treatments are administered by trained medical professionals and use only the highest quality stem cells sourced from trusted suppliers.

Is Stem Cell IV Therapy Safe?

There are different safety considerations for stem cells depending on their origin.

Stem cells from a patient’s own body (eg. bone marrow or adipose tissue) do not carry the risk of immune rejection. Stem cells from birth tissue may be rejected by the patient’s body and cause adverse reactions.

The purity of the stem cells used for IV stem cell therapy will reduce the chance of immune rejection. Our birth tissue-derived stem cells have undergone stringent testing and screening prior to accepting them for use to ensure both the effectiveness and safety of the procedure. Few patients report adverse effects following treatment.

Regardless of the source of the stem cells, there is a very small chance of infection from the procedure itself. That’s why our registered nurses are trained in administering IV treatments for your optimal safety and comfort.

How Is An IV Dose Determined?

Unlike some clinics, which base their dose on the patient’s weight, we only have one type of infusion. Our infusion contains 4.2cc of stem cells (approximately 40 million cells).

How to Book an Appointment?

Unlike other IV treatments, a consultation is required prior to stem cell IV therapy. Our medical director evaluates potential patients during a preliminary consultation to determine whether stem cell IV treatment is right for them.

Where Do You Source Your Stem Cells From?

Our stem cells come from Chara Biologics, a trusted specialist in regenerative medicine. They carefully vet, screen, and source their stem cells from donors in the United States. They follow strict protocols to collect and process the stem cells to preserve the integrity and purity of the stem cells. These protocols help ensure that the stem cells are both high-quality and safe for our patients.

How Does At-Home Stem Cell IV Therapy Work?

During a stem cell IV treatment, one of our registered nurses arrives at the patient’s location with all the necessary equipment for the appointment. The patient will then sit in a comfortable location while the nurse administers the IV line into one of the patient’s arms.

The IV treatment itself takes about 60 minutes, during which time the patient can read, watch a show, browse social media, or even work. The nurse remains with the patient during the entire appointment to monitor the IV and answer questions. Once the IV has been administered, the nurse packs the equipment and departs. Patients can contact Drip Hydration with any further questions or concerns at any time.

What Are The Potential Side Effects Of IV Stem Cell Therapy?

Side effects are very rare due to the quality of the stem cells that we use. Potential side effects include sneezing, sniffling, watery eyes, chest tightness, shortness of breath, malaise, or low-grade fever. These side effects generally go away within 1 - 3 days of treatment.

How Often Do I need To Have Stem Cell IV Therapy?

The frequency of a patient’s stem cell IV therapy treatment depends on several factors. For example, a single injury may only require treatment until the injury has healed. A chronic condition, on the other hand, may need ongoing treatment. Our medical director consults with every patient to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to the patient’s health needs and desired health outcome.

Are The Stem Cells In A Single Treatment From One Or Multiple Donors?

The stem cells in a single treatment are from one donor.

How Long Will It Take Before I Feel The Effects Of IV Stem Cell Treatment?

The area being treated plays a large part in how quickly a patient feels the effect of treatment. For instance, a person may notice pain relief more quickly than someone getting treatment for tissue regeneration, since tissue repair naturally takes more time.

Is Exosome Therapy Safe?

Exosome therapy is considered safe, particularly since this is a non-cellular therapy. Exosomes are cell ‘messengers’, not stem cells. Therefore, this type of therapy does not come with the risk of the patient’s body rejecting treatment.

Is Exosome Therapy FDA Approved?

Exosome therapy is not yet FDA approved. However, our exosomes are collected and processed under strict guidelines in an FDA-approved facility.

Is Stem Cell Therapy FDA Approved?

No, our stem cell therapy is not FDA approved. However, our supplier processes their stem cells in an FDA-approved laboratory and adheres to cGMP (current good manufacturing practice) guidelines for quality assurance.

What Kind Of Cells Are In Drip Hydration’s Stem Cell IV Treatment?

Our stem cells are Meschenymal Stem Cells, which can become different types of tissue throughout the body.

Is There Any Risk Of Immune Rejection Following Treatment?

Yes, there is a small chance that the patient’s immune system will reject the stem cells following treatment.

What Are The Potential Side Effects Of Exosome Therapy?

Exosome therapy is injected into your bloodstream, so the most common side effects are the same as with any type of injection - mild swelling, redness, and/or bruising at the injection site.

Rarely, patients may experience a mild fever or headache that typically resolves within 24 hours.

What’s The Difference Between Exosomes And Stem Cells?

Exosomes and stem cells both promote healing throughout your body, but they are very different. Exosomes are vesicles that carry messages between cells in order to help your body function normally. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can become any type of cell in the body.

As a non-cellular therapy, exosome treatment can be valuable for individuals who do not want to receive cell-based therapy for personal reasons.

How Often Do You Need To Get Exosome Treatment

There are no set guidelines for dosing or frequency of exosome treatment. We personalize treatments to the individual’s health and recovery goals, meaning that no two plans are the same.

Since everyone is different, we regularly assess patients to evaluate when they need a booster treatment to maintain optimal results.
