Stem Cell Therapy for Elbow Pain

Many people do not consider their elbows until they are in pain or discomfort. Elbow pain aggravates because you use your elbow in many ways without thinking about it.

The elbow is a complicated joint that allows you to extend, flex, and rotate your forearm and hand. Daily tasks may be painful when your elbow is injured because most movements combine these actions.

Whether the cause of your elbow pain is arthritis, an injury, or overuse, Renew Medical Centre can get to the bottom of it and put together an effective treatment plan to help you get relief with stem cell therapy.

Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy has advanced significantly over the last decade. Not only are stem cell treatments among the safest available, but they can now resolve a wide range of previously untreatable issues. You can avoid surgery and recover faster while avoiding the ethical issues that plagued the therapy method in the past.

Safe Therapy

The doctors’ creed is “no harm,” and stem cells make that more possible than ever before. Surgical procedures, by definition, are destructive. To achieve a successful outcome, tissue must be lost. Stem cells, on the other hand, are capable of regeneration. 

Using stem cells, you can avoid the risks of surgical interventions. As many victims of malpractice can attest, surgery is fraught with complications. There is also the risk of infection; additional surgery may be necessary if the procedure fails. Stem cells also eliminate the risks associated with anesthesia.

The best part is that stem cells are extracted from your own body and redeployed where needed. 

Stem Cells Increase Versatility

What’s excellent about stem cells is that they can be used for various purposes. This number is growing as medical studies yield promising results. Even now, as doctors discover new ways to maximize the benefits of stem cells, many of their applications are becoming more efficient.

Treatment and recovery time are reduced.

Another advantage of stem cell therapy treatment is its ease of administration. Stem cells must first be extracted; the two primary options are bone marrow and fat tissue. This procedure takes little time away from the overall therapy.

Bone marrow extractions are typically performed on the hip or femur, which contain large amounts of MSCs. However, fat tissue extraction is becoming popular because it is less invasive and can be done quickly. 

A simple incision and a few minutes of liposuction can provide enough stem cells for the therapy. They can then be applied once the cells have been gathered.

Better Treatment

We want to provide the highest quality treatment with incredible health benefits. Stem cells have been shown to do just that, and their effectiveness is only increasing. There are several reasons why stem cell therapy is a better option.

Common causes of elbow pain

The most common cause of elbow pain is activities that require repetitive use. Tennis (tennis elbow) and golf (golfer’s elbow) are examples of these activities. Other common causes include:

Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the two most common types of arthritis that can cause elbow pain.

Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, a fluid-filled cavity in the joint that cushions and prevents friction.

Tendonitis is a condition in which tendons become inflamed and irritated, frequently due to repetitive motions and overuse.

Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve in your arm is compressed or irritated, where it passes through the elbow.

A blow usually causes a dislocated elbow to the elbow or a fall in which you land on your hand; children who are lifted (or swung) by their forearms may suffer from a dislocated elbow.

Sprains occur when the ligaments that connect joints are torn or stretched.

Before receiving stem cell treatment, a precise diagnosis is required. We will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and discuss your symptoms to determine the cause of your elbow pain.

Stem cell therapy for elbow pain

Stem cell therapy represents a significant advancement in orthopedic medicine. It entails stimulating and accelerating healing by using specialized cells. The first step in stem cell therapy is to collect and prepare your stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

The team at Renew Medical Centre retrieves stem cells from your own body, including a specific type known as mesenchymal stem cells, which repair and regenerate. Adult mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into various essential cells, including cartilage, ligament, tendon, bone, muscle, and fat.

We use platelet-rich plasma from your blood in addition to stem cells. Platelets secrete growth factors that aid in the recovery of your elbow by signaling stem cells to flood the area and initiate healing and regeneration.

PRP injections and stem cell therapy help to improve joint function and relieve elbow pain.

Regenerative medicine treats the underlying cause of your pain by reducing inflammation, improving healing, and stimulating regrowth. As a result, there is less pain and better functioning.
