The elbow is a joint that is constructed of bone, cartilage, ligaments, and fluid, but it is the muscles and tendons that help the elbow joint function. Although elbow pain is common when the joint is overused, most problems occur when any of the structures are injured or diseased. The most common cause of elbow pain is tendonitis, which is inflammation of the tendon that attaches the muscle to the bone. Many golfers and tennis players develop elbow tendonitis after years of playing these sports. In fact, many professional athletes who have developed tendonitis in the elbow have received Regenerative Medicine Therapy or Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for their injuries, and they have returned to action with few signs that an injury ever happened. The purpose of concentrated cells being injected into the affected area is to release an abundance of growth factors to promote natural healing.
Regenerative Medicine Therapy for elbow pain has helped many patients recover from tennis and golfer’s elbow, osteoarthritis, and even degenerative bone and tissue conditions. Regenerative Medicine Therapy is a non-surgical procedure that allows the doctors at Stem Cell and Pain Management Center of Irvine in the Orange County area to help increase the body’s natural ability to heal when injected with concentrated cells. When you are injected with Regenerative Medicine Therapy, cells are able to differentiate into specialized cells to repair the affected muscles, tendons, cartilage, and bones. This therapy also helps promote increased blood flow and growth factors that help regenerate tissue in the body.
With Regenerative Medicine Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, your chances of making a full recovery improve exponentially. At Stem Cell and Pain Management Center of Irvine in the Orange County area, we have helped many patients return to the sport they love after suffering for months with pain and discomfort in the elbow. Don’t let your elbow injury keep you out of the game.
The number of sessions with Regenerative Medicine Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection Therapy a patient receives depends on the severity of the injury. Some of the more common causes of elbow pain include:
