In Jupiter, Florida and surrounding areas, many patients are turning to our clinic as a better alternative to elbow surgery. Regenerative medicine offers treatments that provide all-natural pain relief for faster recovery, with significantly fewer complications than surgery, for treatment of elbow tendonitis, inner elbow pain, elbow pain when lifting, bending, and straightening, and more.
Elbow Pain Treatment
Treatments containing stem cells and growth factors feature therapeutic properties that signal cellular repairs to begin. Growth factors are at the forefront of healing. Your body is equipped with natural repair and restorative mechanisms to heal musculoskeletal conditions that cause pain, such as elbow discomfort. Various factors, such as the aging processes and degenerative diseases, interfere with or limit how well your body repairs itself. We use Wharton jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells that promote internal healing and regeneration of damaged tissue for elbow pain relief.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections contain unique blood cell fragments called platelets. Platelets can be obtained from your blood, concentrated and then injected into your injured elbow joint, ligament or tendon to accelerate healing. PRP supplies the joint with healing growth factors and other necessary cells, but it also stimulates new collagen and tissue production for smoother movements.
Do you suffer from tennis elbow in Jupiter, Florida? Our doctors are experienced in treating this common injury and others. There’s a misconception that tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow only affects athletes, but anyone who engages in activities that use the repetitive motion of the forearm and wrist can develop this condition.
Tennis elbow refers to chronic pain at the top of your forearm and outside of the elbow.
Tennis elbow usually develops slowly. Pain located on the outer portion of the elbow may be sharp and burning. Tennis elbow also causes weakness in the hand of the affected arm. Weak grip strength is usually noticeable when shaking hands, turning a screwdriver, holding a coffee cup, opening doors or holding gardening tools.
Inner & Outer Elbow Pain
Your elbow is the joint where the three long bones of your arm meet. Because of frequent use of your elbow, there is always a possibility of injury. Many people opt for surgery as an elbow pain treatment, which requires you to be hospitalized a few days and a relatively slow recovery.
Elbow pain causes include:
- Dislocated elbow
Our regenerative therapies support the self-healing process of the elbow joint to reverse disease and suppress inflammatory conditions that can worsen the pain.
